Frequently Asked Questions

What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is a set of standards to handle information security and ensure data protection. As an Information Security Management System (ISMS) it is used internationally to offer a system of requirements for categorizing information to protect and to identify the methods to protect it. Officially known as ISO/IEC 27001, it was developed by the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission.

What is the difference between ISO 27001 and ISO 27002?

ISO 27001 is a security framework that lays out a set of requirements that must be met for businesses to achieve certification. Meanwhile, ISO 27002 is a supporting document that provides additional details and advice for meeting those certification requirements. There are no audits or certifications for ISO 27002, as it is a supporting document.

How much does ISO 27001 cost?

ISO 27001 can be rather affordable, both for implementation and certification. Using an information security management platform like Carbide can dramatically reduce the time and resources needed to achieve and maintain certification. For certification, the cost will depend on your readiness matched against ISO 27001’s control requirements and will rely primarily on the results of an internal audit. Ultimately costs will vary depending on your existing security posture, ISMS scope, and any external resources needed.

Who uses the ISO 27001 framework?

ISO 27001 is a globally recognized security framework for building and maintaining an Information Security Management System meant to protect information and prevent privacy risks in your organization. Organizations use ISO 27001 to ensure and demonstrate data security, as well as mitigate risks and prevent data breaches. It can also be used to meet compliance requirements of data protection regulations.

How many controls are in ISO 27001?

There are 14 groups of 114 controls to Annex A, which can be mapped to meet the objectives and requirements of the organization. These controls are all in the Carbide platform, complete with compliant policies that are automatically customized for your organization and an Implementation Plan that guides you through required action items.

Does my business need an audit to be ISO 27001 certified?

Businesses may opt to “self-certify” compliance with ISO 27001, though this does not provide the external validation of certification. To be ISO 27001 certified requires two stages of audits: the first stage is a preliminary review of documentation, while the second stage is the “full” audit that determines if you are up to standard and ready for certification.
