ISO 27001 is an international standard for an information security management system (ISMS) in organizations. Its goal is to continuously assimilate, preserve, and improve the management of security information in organizations. Regardless of size or company profile, ISO 27001 helps identify and mitigate current and future threats to data management while minimizing the risks of a leakage of information.
The ISO 27001 standard requires a company to conduct internal audits at planned intervals. During an internal audit, the auditor conducts a thorough review of the company’s current quality and regulatory documentation prior to an ISO 27001 audit by an accredited certification body. At the end of the audit, the auditor submits a comprehensive, non-biased report, that determines the company’s compliance to ISO 27001 requirements.
Who executes internal Audits?
Internal audits can be performed by an internal person or an external expert. Having a professional, third-party auditor is more beneficial, as the auditor brings an objective view when assessing the status of the processes within your ISMS.
