FAQs

ISMS stands for “Information Security Management System” which is the title of the ISO 27001 standard. ISO 27001 is made of a set of clauses to provide guidance on the creation or a best practice ISMS system to manage security risks and drive improvements in a company’s security posture.

In annexure A of ISO 27001 a list of common security controls (Security Policy framework, HR security, physical security, network security, etc.) are listed and used to effectively assess all aspects of an organisation.

Security Officers commonly mistake annexure controls with the ISO 27001 standard clauses, thus thinking that certification is near impossible for their companies. The ISO 27001 certification recognises the ability for an organisation to manage their security risks and certification is not dependent on all annexure controls being implemented and matured.

Given our experience, ISMSs are an invaluable tool to secure a repeatable flow of risk-based security investment from the business. Since ISO 27001 requires security risks to be formally owned by business/ executives the sole accountability for security is moved out of the IT department and shared with businesses.

Privasec has a very hands on approach and will build the entire ISMS for you. Limited but regular input will however be required from the management team. The risk assessment process is a one-time impact on operational staff and requires between 30-120 minutes of their time depending on their specific role.

SAI Global, BSI or Loyds are certification bodies. They conduct the final certification audits, therefore cannot consult and help you with the establishment of your ISMS.

Privasec is not a certification body and therefore cannot certify organisations or businesses. Your Privasec consultant will however act on your behalf at the audit and guide the primary auditee during the certification audit.

Privasec is an independent firm, not a technology integrator and does not partner with any vendors. Privasec does not mitigate risk on behalf of clients. Our aim is to assist our clients through the remediation process and advise on suitable options and technologies where required. We may be able, at the request of clients, to carry out work if it falls within our service offering.
