Certification to ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management

Keep your information confidential with a certified ISO/IEC 27001 system and show that you have information security risks under control. Compliance with world-class standards can help you win customer trust and new business opportunities.   

How to get certified to ISO/IEC 27001

We make the certification process simple. After we receive your application we appoint a client manager who will guide you and your business through the following steps.

  1. Gap analysis 

This is an optional pre-assessment service where we take a closer look at your existing  information security management system (ISMS) and compare it with ISO/IEC 27001  requirements. This helps identify areas that need more work before we carry out a  formal assessment, saving you time and money.


      2. Formal assessment 

A two-stage process. First your BSI Client Manager will review your organization’s  readiness for assessment by checking if the necessary ISO/IEC 27001 procedures and  controls have been developed in your organization. We will share the details of our  findings with you via our Assurance Portal, so that if we find gaps, you can close  them.
Next, if all the requirements are in place, we’ll assess the implementation of the procedures and controls within your organization to make sure that they are working  effectively as required for certification of ISO/IEC 27001.


3. Certification and beyond 
When you achieve certification you’ll receive your BSI ISO/IEC 27001 certificate which is valid for three years. Your BSI Client Manager will visit you regularly to make sure your system doesn’t just remain compliant, but it continually improves a nd adds value to your organization.

You’ll be able to access all the information related to your certification via our BSI  Assurance Portal. Available  24/7, you can view essential information, such as your  next 12 months of visit dates, audit reports, and certificates to support you with  managing your BSI assessments and promoting your success.
