What is ISO 27001?
ISO 27001 is an internationally recognised standard for managing and maintaining information security within your business. It outlines the requirements for an information security management system (ISMS), and provides a framework for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving business information security. ISO 27001 compliance makes sure that your people, processes and technology are working together to meet and maintain the highest security standards.
Compliance with ISO 27001 demonstrates to customers and suppliers that your organisation takes information security seriously, enhances your reputation and boosts sales. ISO 27001 compliance can also help your business meet legal and regulatory requirements, including UK GDPR, EU GDPR, FCA, PCI DSS and more.Book a consultation

ISO 27001 Frequently asked questions
What is ISO 27001 certification?
What are the business benefits of ISO 27001?
According to IBM’s Security Report, the global average total cost of a data breach in 2020 was £2.69 million. With cyber and information security making headlines every day, and hackers targeting business of all sizes, being ISO 27001 compliant is crucial.
How much does ISO 27001 certification cost?
The cost of ISO 27001 certification depends on the size and nature of your business, as well as the gap between your current status and the desired, compliant state. By undertaking a gap analysis first, this journey can be accurately mapped, saving valuable time and money when it comes to implementation.
What’s an ISMS?
ISMS stands for Information Security Management System, and is the core component of ISO 27001. It’s the framework that outlines all security risks and your controls for them. It covers people, processes and technology and typically encompasses your entire organisation, securing your corporate information assets confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA).
What is the ISO/IEC 27000-series standard?
ISO 27000 series is a family of information security management standards and documents covering all areas of the ISO standard for information management security. ISO 27001 is specifically the certification standard whereas ISO 27002 (and beyond) are controls, guidance and information documents, for the ISO 27001 certification standard.
What’s the difference between ISO 9001 and ISO 27001?
ISO 9001 is a standard for ensuring the quality of your services and is based on a QMS (Quality Management System), whereas ISO 27001 sets the standard for information security and uses an ISMS (Information Security Management System). There’s actually some overlap between the two standards, so gaining ISO 27001 compliance will give you a head start on ISO 9001, and vice versa.
What are the difference between ISO 27001 & Cyber Essentials Standards?
|ISO 27001||Cyber Essentials|
|What is it||An international standard that sets out the requirements of an Information Security Management System to manage information security risk in a systematic way. The standard isn’t mandatory however many contracts/tenders do stipulate it as a requirement.||An NCSC backed UK assurance scheme addressing five technical security controls to help businesses address the most common vulnerabilities. Cyber Essentials is mandatory for government contracts.|
|Risk||ISO 27001 adopts a risk-based approach where organisations set their risk acceptance criteria and risk methodology. This determines how risks are addressed.||Cyber Essentials aims to address the most common vulnerabilities found in organisations. It is not a risk-based approach|
|Recognition||ISO 27001 is an international standard recognised around the world||Cyber Essentials is a UK based scheme and is not well known worldwide|
|Time to implement||Months||Days – weeks|
|Certification process||Certification is provided by a Certification Body. This involves a Stage 1 and Stage 2 audit, and annual surveillance audits. Certification lasts for 3 years, as long as the organisation passes the audits.||Complete a self-assessment questionnaire (or undergo vulnerability scans and a workstation assessment if taking Cyber Essentials Plus) and be assessed by a IASME Cyber Essentials Assessor. Certification must be repeated annually.|
|Scope||Scope is defined by the organisation but the standard encompasses the business and is not just focused on IT.||Focuses on 5 key areas (shown below) and is more IT focused. |
|Applicability||Aimed at all businesses.||Aimed at all businesses, but particularly targets smaller businesses that may have not previously considered cybersecurity.|
What’s the difference between certification and accreditation?
When it comes to ISO 27001, the words certification and accreditation are often used interchangeably by companies who don’t know better. However, there is a difference. For ISO 27001 in the UK, a certification body tests organisations against the ISO 27001 standard, and gives them a registered certificate if they pass. The accreditation body on the other hand, is responsible for ensuring that the certification bodies all work to the same standard.
In the UK the accreditation body is UKAS and they’re recognised by the Government. So to sum up, end user companies are certified as ISO 27001 compliance by a certification body, who are in turn accredited by the accreditation body (UKAS).
