ISO 27001 Handbook

If you want to understand ISO 27001, this handbook is all you need. It not only explains in a clear way what to do, but also the reasons why.

This book helps you to bring the information security of your organization to the right level by using the ISO/IEC 27001 standard.

An organization often provides services or products for years before the decision is taken to obtain an ISO/IEC 27001 certificate. Usually, a lot has already been done in the field of information security, but after reading the requirements of the standard, it seems that something more needs to be done: an ‘information security management system’ must be set up. A what?

This handbook is intended to help small and medium-sized businesses establish, implement, maintain and continually improve an information security management system in accordance with the requirements of the international standard ISO/IEC 27001. At the same time, this handbook is also intended to provide information to auditors who must investigate whether an information security management system meets all requirements and has been effectively implemented.

This handbook assumes that you ultimately want your information security management system to be certified by an accredited certification body. The moment you invite a certification body to perform a certification audit, you must be ready to demonstrate that your management system meets all the requirements of the Standard. In this book, you will find detailed explanations, more than a hundred examples, and sixty-one common pitfalls. It also contains information about the rules of the game and the course of a certification audit.
