ISO 27001

Sapphire specialises in the delivery of Information Security Management System (ISMS) programmes where the objective is either ISO 27001:2013 compliance or to achieve third party ISO 27001 Certification. 

In our experience, we have found that many organisations find the prospect of achieving ISO 27001 daunting, often believing that the process can be lengthy and costly. This isn't the case and working with your team Sapphire's consultants will take a modular approach to your success.

Each programme is typically divided into a number of phases which includes:

Current State Analysis: ISMS scope and Gap Analysis
Risk Assessment & Management: Register & Policy
Security Improvement Plan: ISMS Document Set
Information Security Awareness: Education & Training
ISO 27001 Mock Compliance: Document Review & Audit

Benefits of ISO 27001

Compliance or certification to the ISO 27001 standard demonstrates that an organisation follows information security best-practice guidelines which are measured through continuous analysis, assessment and robust security policy reviews.

The standard demonstrates that an organisation is:

> committed to delivering effective security
> has the ability to handle information in a secure manner
> respond quickly and effectively to any security incidents which may occur.

Clients and third-party businesses are increasingly requesting that suppliers demonstrate that they implement solid and robust information security; the standard is a trusted measure that good policies, procedures and technical controls are implemented and reviewed on a regular basis.
