Benefits of gaining ISO 27001 certification for Australian organisations


Improve your security posture

ISO 27001 is a risk-based standard designed to help you continuously manage and uplift security posture in line with business objectives. It puts the focus on security controls that matter and make a real difference specific to your organisation.

Flexible scope to suit your needs

ISO 27001 is flexible and can be adapted for organisations of all sizes. Different security requirements for different parts of your business? No problem, the scope of implementation for ISO 27001 can be tailored to just those areas that need it.

International recognition

International standards can be strategic tools to help organisations tackle challenges and compete on a global stage. The biggest advantage of ISO 27001 compared to other cyber security frameworks is that this recognition is global.

Maintain trust and reputation

ISO 27001 certification signals to your customers and business partners that you take information security seriously and have in place robust systems and procedures to safeguard sensitive data.

ISO 27001 Gap Assessment 

Our ISO 27001 Gap Assessment service is suitable for organisations that need a detailed understanding of the current state of their ISMS compared to ISO 27001 requirements. We will also provide you with a roadmap of activities to address gaps identified. If your goal is certification, we will develop a timeline for becoming ISO 27001 certified based on the findings of the assessment.

ISMS Internal Audit 

Our Internal Audit service is suitable for organisations that have an operating ISMS and are either planning to certify or have certified previously to ISO 27001. We will tailor a program for once off or ongoing audits that can cover some or all of the ISO 27001 clauses and applicable controls in scope. Even for organisations with internal resources managing their ISMS, this is a popular activity to outsource to ensure that the audit is truly independent.


ISO 27001 Jump Start 

Our ISO 27001 Jump Start service is designed for organisations, whether big or small, starting out on their ISMS journey. We will support you in identifying and defining the foundational elements needed to operate an ISO 27001-compliant ISMS.

ISO 27001 Implementation 

Our ISO 27001 Implementation service is suitable for organisations looking to deploy an ISO 27001-certified ISMS. We will partner with you to develop security governance, risk management, and internal processes, policies and procedures to appropriately manage your risk profile and achieve ISO 27001 compliance. This is a more comprehensive version of our ISO 27001 Jump Start, but can also be undertaken as a secondary activity following either a Jump Start or a Gap Assessment.


ISO 27001:2013 to 2022 Transition

ISO 27001 recently underwent a version change. Compliance with the standard is therefore currently in a transition period. Through our Transition service, we will support and advise you in updating your ISMS to align with the latest expectations in the 2022 version of the standard and prepare you for your first ISO 27001:2022 certification audit. You will gain insights into identifying new and emerging security risks and how you can apply the revised ISO 27001:2022 Annex A control set to mitigate them.

ISMS Manage and Maintain 

Gaining ISO 27001 certification is only the start of your ISMS journey. Our ISMS Manage and Maintain is a scalable service designed to help you conduct ongoing tasks and stay compliant. You will have access to security risk experts at your fingertips who will advise and guide you on maintaining and continually improving your security risk posture.

ISO 27001 FAQs

ISO 27001 is the international standard for best practice in information security management. Specifically, it is a standard that outlines the minimum expectations for implementing and Information Security Management System (ISMS).

ISO 27001 is intended to bring information security under explicit management control. Being a formal standard means that it mandates specific requirements and organisations can therefore be formally audited and certified compliant with the standard.

Telling customers and clients that you follow or comply with “best practices” tends to ring hollow these days. They want independent assurance that you do what you say. This is where certification comes in.

Certification against ISO 27001 involves audits by fully independent, accredited bodies, and provides you with proof of your compliance with the requirements of the standard.

Certification is valid for three years, after which a recertification audit must be completed.

Additionally, the auditors providing certification services will likely require you to undergo annual surveillance audits as well.

In full, it is the ”International Standards Organisation/International Electrotechnical Commission Standard 27001, version 2022 – Information Security, Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection; Information Security Management Systems”. For good reason, you will generally see it referred to simply as “ISO 27001”.

An information security management system (ISMS) is an organisation’s systematic approach to managing and protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA) of information assets.

A common misconception is that ISO 27001 (or an ISMS), is simply a fixed list of technical controls which must be implemented. In reality, an ISMS is first and foremost a framework used for determining which controls are needed to address information security risks, implementing those controls, and monitoring their effectiveness.

An effective ISMS requires skilled decision-making, documented policies and procedures, awareness training, clear lines of responsibility and asset ownership, risk assessments and risk treatment plans, incident response, vendor management, internal auditing, and more.

The business benefits from ISO 27001 certification are considerable.

Not only do the standards help ensure that a business’ security risks are managed cost-effectively, but the adherence to the recognised standards sends a valuable and important message to customers and business partners: this business does things the correct way.

ISO 27001 is invaluable for monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a company’s information security management system (ISMS) and will unquestionably give customers greater confidence in the way they interact with your business.

Compliance with the standard offers organisations the following benefits:

  • Demonstrates a clear commitment to Information Security Management to third parties and stakeholders
  • Systematically examines the organisation’s information security risks, taking account of the threats, vulnerabilities, and impacts
  • Designs and implements a coherent and comprehensive suite of information security controls and/or other forms of risk treatment (such as risk avoidance or risk transfer) to address those risks that are deemed unacceptable
  • Adopts an overarching management process to ensure that the information security controls continue to meet the organisation’s information security needs on an ongoing basis
  • Provides confidence to customers & business partners
  • Protects the company assets, shareholders and directors
  • Provides a competitive advantage

Because ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard, it is adopted worldwide by a broad range organisations and industries and can be implemented in any kind of organisation, profit or non-profit, private or state-owned, small or large.

In Australia, many state governments have developed information security requirements that their departments must follow, and these requirements usually have ISO 27001 at their core.
