Information security is one of the central concerns of the modern organization. The volume and value of the data used in everyday business increasingly informs how organizations work and how they are successful. To protect this information and be seen to be protecting more and more companies are becoming ISO 27001 certified.
The Information Security Management System (ISMS) is a dynamic area with frequent changes to the controls, and the environment. For all issues related to the audit, the ISO 27001 Auditor Training must be given that helps them in being independent in both attitude and appearance. The ISMS auditor should be independent of the area or activity being reviewed to permit completion target of the audit engagement.
Managing Audit programs for ISO 27001 – Information Security Management System should involve following activities:
- Advice on the planning and scope of audits of individual ISMS within the overall verification work program, for example, the idea of combining broad but shallow audits of ISMS audits with narrower but deeper on areas of particular concern.
- ISMS audits of multi-site organizations, including multinational and “group” structures, where comparisons between ISMSs in operation within individual business units can help to share and promote good practice.
- Audit ISMS business partners, focusing on the value of the ISO 27001 Certification as a means to gain a level of confidence in the state of their ISMSs without necessarily having to do the audit work.
- Develop a program of internal ISMS audit. From a standpoint of IRCA you develop an audit plan in preparation for the verification of an organization. This plan is derived from the document “Scope of Registration” of an individual fills when you request a certification audit of a Registrar. Moreover the scope of the registration of the domain definition will also feed the verification plan.
