What is the ISO 27001 Certification?

It is an international recognition for the ISMS or Information Security Management System of an organization and conveys that its sensitive data and information assets are secure.

Obtaining an ISO 27001 standard conveys that the organization is a reputable and high-quality one, which adheres to the highest cyber security practices. It can prove to both partners and customers, that the organization is serious about safeguarding their data. Whether you want to achieve or maintain the ISO 27001 certification, the ISO experts at Wattlecorp UAE will guide you every step of the way. The current standard is ISO 27001:2013.

Importance of ISO 27001 in the UAE

The UAE is very strict about data security and cybersecurity compliance to regulations; when it comes to information technology, the UAE has several regulations that companies have to comply with.

ISO 27001 is a global standard with high requirements; so, if you are certified ISO 27001, it increases the confidence of customers, vendors, and government authorities, and conveys that your business is of international standards. The ISO 27001 certification is the most preferred certification standard by organizations cutting across sectors in Dubai and other parts of the UAE.

What are the Standard Goals of ISO 27001?

Confidentiality

the right to access information should only be given to authorized persons

Integrity

Benefits of ISO 27001 Audit

Maintain compliance with rules and regulations

The regulatory framework regarding information security is a dynamic organism, with newer and more stringent laws being brought into force frequently. Fortunately, you can ensure compliance with most of those regulations by getting your ISO 27001 certification in Dubai. It offers the optimal means and tools to comply with them.

Enhanced Organization

Companies on the growth curve often cannot spare the time to set and define their processes, and this can leave employees floundering. By implementing ISO 27001, this issue can be addressed, as companies need to note down their major processes, regardless of whether they are related to security. This way, everyone will know what is expected of them, and when.

Gain a competitive Edge

Your organization will come across as the more reliable one in consumer minds if you are ISO 27001 certified and your competitors are not. The certification tells them that you are serious about safeguarding their information.

Save money

At its core, the ISO 27001 standard is about ensuring that no security breach takes place. Big or small, every incident costs money; by thwarting these incidents your organization can save money significantly – even when you account for the expenditure incurred in implementing the standard.

How ISO 27001 Works

The ISO 27001 standard focuses on safeguarding the information in a company and ensures that it stays confidential, accessible and truthful.

This is done by:

  • Conducting a risk assessment to identify the potential problems that the information may face
  • Risk mitigation or treatment where we describe what must be done to avert security incidents from happening.

Two Parts of the Standard

The first part comprises 11 clauses (0 -10; from 0 to 3 they contain the introduction, terms, scope, definitions references. From clause 4 to 10, it lists the mandatory requirements for organizations that want to comply with the standard.

The second part details the 114 control objectives and controls; while not mandatory, these are an important element in the process of risk management. Called Annex A, the second part of the ISO 27001 standard serves as a guide to achieving the standard, supporting the clauses as given in the first part.

Requirements and Security Controls

Clause 4

Clause 4 deals with the organization’s context – identifying internal and external issues and stakeholders. The ISMS scope is defined with this in mind – how extensively it will be applied, and so on.

Clause 5

Clause 5 deals with the leadership requirements as the top management must be firmly committed to the certification. They have to define a policy as per the information security, assign roles and responsibilities, and provide the requisite resources for the ISMS.

Clause 6

Clause 6 states the necessity of the risk assessment, which provides the basis for the ISMS, and the framing of information security goals which must be in line with the overarching objectives of the organization.

Clause 7

Clause 7 talks about the documentation of information, which is critical for successful ISMS implementation. It also deals with the resources, employee competence, communication, and awareness which are essential for the task.

Clause 8

Clause 8 refers to the mandatory processes like risk assessment and treatment, required for implementing an information security framework.

Clause 9

Clause 9 stresses the importance of monitoring, analysing, measuring and assessing the ISMS at frequent intervals by the department, as well as internal audits.

Clause 10

Clause 10 deals with the need to make improvements in the system based on the evaluation, and expects the process to be continuous.

The Controls in ISO 27001 and their Implementation

The ISO 27001 controls are the measures that must be employed to mitigate the risk to acceptable levels, and there are 114 of them. They are categorized and implemented as follows:

Technical controls

These are deployed in information systems through software and hardware, and by adding certain firmware elements to the systems. Antivirus software and taking backups are examples.

Organizational controls

Access control policies, Bring Your Own Device policies etc are examples of these controls, which are executed by setting rules and expected behaviour from employees, systems, and software.

Legal controls

These controls deal with enforcement of rules, regulations, contracts and other legal instruments the organization must maintain compliance with. NDAs and SLAs are examples.

Physical controls

CCTV cameras, sophisticated locks, alarm systems, security guards are examples of physical controls to secure equipment that have physical interactions with people.

Human resource controls

Through internal training for awareness and ISO 27001 auditors, employees can be made competent and capable of discharging their duties securely.
