This second edition provides user guidance on getting ready and prepared for an ISMS certification audit. It is based on the new editions of ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 27006 and ISO 27007.
The book acts as a practical guide for organizations wishing to carry out internal assessment of their information security management system (ISMS) against the requirements in the new ISO/IEC 27001:2013.
It is of particular interest to those with an interest in ISMS (information security management system) certification and is essential reading for those that already have a certified ISMS against the previous edition or those about to embark on the process of certification.
This book provides guidance on the complete “life cycle” of ISMS processes and activities required to establish, implement, monitor and continually improve a set of management controls and processes to achieve effective information security.
It will help those involved in certification audits understand the transition from the old to the new editions of ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 2700 and includes new references and definitions.
The book is applicable to organizations of any size, government departments and agencies, certification and accreditation bodies, training organizations, academic institutions, implementers, auditors, consultants, trainers and lecturers.
