Get reliable access to the best information security services so you can feel confident in the decisions you make about security for your company.

In today’s interconnected world, the implementation of ISO 27001 ISMS has become a cornerstone for organizations that prioritize data protection. As businesses increasingly rely on digital processes and tools to transmit, access, and store vast amounts of data, the need for robust security postures has never been more evident. An ISO 27001-compliant ISMS (Information Security Management System) grounded in the ISO 27001 requirements, ensures that organizations have the necessary technical controls in place to safeguard sensitive information. Moreover, the ISO 27001 data protection standards emphasize not just the technical aspects but also the organizational and human elements of information security.

But the journey doesn’t end with the initial certification. Maintaining ISO 27001 certification year after year is crucial for businesses to demonstrate their ongoing commitment to data security. This continuous adherence to ISO 27001 compliance requirements signals to potential clients, partners, and stakeholders that the organization is serious about data protection.

However, merely having internal safeguards isn’t enough. The ISO 27001:2013 controls provide a comprehensive framework that addresses a wide range of security threats, ensuring that data remains protected against both current and emerging challenges.

    What is an ISO 27001 surveillance audit?

    After achieving ISO 27001 certification, organizations undergo surveillance audits to ensure ongoing compliance with the standard. These are periodic reviews conducted by the certification body, usually annually, to verify that the ISMS remains effective and that the organization continues to adhere to the standard's requirements.
