What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is a globally recognized standard, developed and published by the International Organization for Standardization. The standard encompasses a comprehensive suite of policies, procedures, and controls aimed at safeguarding data against unauthorized access and breaches. This includes outlining best practices and requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). An ISMS is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company and customer  information, ensuring secure processing, storage, and transmission. 

As a leading provider of automotive connected vehicle Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions, that covers the landscape of services across organizational, security, software and firmware, Sibros is committed to delivering secure and robust software and cloud solutions. This commitment is underscored by the company’s recent achievement of ISO 27001 certification. Read on to find out more.

Significance of Certification

Attaining ISO 27001 certification is a rigorous endeavor that signifies a company’s unwavering commitment to upholding superior standards of information security. The journey towards certification involves several meticulous steps to ensure that an organization’s Information Security Management System (ISMS) is robust, effective, and compliant. Certification includes the following stages:

  • Gap Analysis: A thorough gap analysis is conducted to identify differences and inadequacies between the existing ISMS and the standards and requirements of ISO 27001. This step is crucial to understand the extent of work required to achieve compliance.
  • ISMS Development and Implementation: Next, the organization works to develop and implement an ISMS that complies with ISO 27001 standards. This includes establishing a set of security policies, identifying risks, implementing security controls, and setting up a continual improvement process.
  • Internal Audit: An internal audit is then carried out to ascertain the effectiveness of the ISMS and identify any areas of non-compliance or improvement.
  • Management Review: Top management reviews the ISMS and the results of the internal audit, ensuring that the system is effective and aligns with the organization's strategic direction.
  • Certification Audit: Once the ISMS is established and refined, an external certification audit is conducted by an accredited certification body. The audit is carried out in two stages. 
  • Stage 1 focuses on reviewing the ISMS documentation.
  • Stage 2 assesses the implementation and effectiveness of the ISMS.
  • Certification Awarded: After a successful certification audit, the organization is awarded with ISO 27001 certification, signifying its compliance with international standards of information security.
  • Continual Improvement: The journey doesn't end with certification; continual improvement is a vital part of ISO 27001. It requires organizations to regularly review and refine their ISMS to ensure it remains effective against evolving security threats.

The attainment of ISO 27001 certification underscores a steadfast dedication to providing secure and reliable software solutions. This certification not only augments credibility but also provides partners with the assurance that operations and solutions adhere to internationally recognized standards of information security.
