ISO 27001 Certification Process

ISO 27001 Certification Process

Your information security management system should start here.

The ISO/IEC 27001 framework is the international standard for information security management systems (ISMS). The ISO 27001 framework provides a strong foundational approach to the management of information security that allows companies to approach risk as an organization. An ISO 27001 Information Security Management Systems certification includes an optional pre-assessment, a two-stage certification audit and ongoing surveillance audits. Aprio is here to help ease an organization’s transition to and implementation of this standard.

ISO 27001 can represent a cornerstone for most security audits or compliance requirements, especially SOC 2 and the HIPAA Security Rule. Aprio’s ISO certification program can streamline the process for clients that are required to conduct other security audits. We minimize the need to manage multiple audit firms and help reduce the redundancies in certification requirements. Aprio’s streamlined process saves you time and unnecessary duplication of fees.

Aprio delivers to our clients a unified risk management program that includes risk analysis, risk management and on-going monitoring and attestation services against such frameworks as SOC 2, PCI Data Security Standard and ISO 27001. A CPA attestation provides clients with the highest level of confidence and peace of mind, offering greater assurance than a report or certification for those clients that need the highest level of assurance available.
