Case Study

We were considering becoming ISO27001 accredited but needed to understand the workload to achieve this. AMARU were trusted advisers and we found them to be extremely responsive and communicative. The gap analysis went smoothly and at the end we had a clear idea of exactly where we needed to focus our efforts to achieve compliance and how much effort it would take.

We are so impressed with their services, we’ve signed them on for a 3 year security project with us.

Frequently Asked Questions

See our frequently asked cyber security questions below for help and advice.

What is the ISO 27001 Standard?

The ISO 27001 Standard is an internationally recognised framework that outlines the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS). Its purpose is to help organisations of all sizes and industries protect their sensitive information assets by addressing the risks and vulnerabilities that they face in the digital age.

The scope of ISO 27001 includes establishing a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information, including financial data, IP, employee details, and third-party information. It also covers the assessment and treatment of information security risks, the implementation of security controls to mitigate these risks, and the establishment of a culture of security awareness and compliance within the organisation.

What are the benefits of obtaining ISO 27001 certification?

Benefits include enhanced data security, improved customer confidence, potential cost savings from reduced security incidents, and a competitive advantage in the marketplace. You will be able to position your business as a strong competitor and eventually land much bigger deals locally and globally. 

How long does it take to get ISO 27001 certified?

There are a number of factors that can determine the duration of achieving the ISO 27001 certification. Some of them include: scope of the certification, which comprises of things like: size of your organisation, the complexity of processes, number of locations and number of employees. And then the maturity of the information security capability and knowledge already within your organisation. The process may also be quicker if your organisation already has experience of management system standards.
Our recommendation would be to treat this certification as a project and manage it accordingly. This can either be done in-house or with the support of our ISO 27001 consultants.
Well-run projects with our team of experts can take 3-4 months, although over 6 months is not uncommon. In ideal circumstances the organisation will have a fully functioning management system in place before the audits take place. Towards of the end of the project the organisation would undergo a short pre-audit check- to ensure your readiness. After which, an audit is conducted by third-party auditors typically over several days, and that is where every requirement of the standard and the organisation’s information security controls are reviewed.
