In the webinar, Karl Viertel will be sharing some of the learnings gained along the way and provide a detailed discussion for any organisation looking to obtain an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification, and how to implement this using Alyne’s Software as a Service.
The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification remains one of the most trusted and widely recognised standards for Information Security Management across regions and industry sectors. We therefore embarked on our journey of obtaining a certification in late 2017 and obtained certification in early 2018. As of March 2019 we have also successfully passed our first supervisory audit without any findings.
Naturally, we used our own internal instance of Alyne for building our Information Security Management System (ISMS). Using Alyne to implement your ISMS provides you with some powerful advantages, such as:
1. Content out of the box
Defining the right policies and developing a control framework compliant with the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 requirements takes a lot of time if you are starting from scratch. With Alyne, this is ready on day one.
2. Risk Analytics
An ISMS is very much based on a Plan-Do- Check-Act cycle. A core lever for driving this cycle are identified risks that are then mitigated to continuously improve the ISMS. Identifying and quantifying the risks can be a difficult task. Alyne’s risk analytics are a powerful tool for this.
3. Collaboration and Awareness
Involving management and people responsible for processes affected by the ISMS are core aspects of an ISMS. Providing a platform that makes it easy for the team to collaborate and document the activities relevant to the management system is essential to limit the effort for the team. Alyne is that platform.
4. Framework Synergies
Likely ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is only one framework relevant to your overall governance program. With Alyne you can easily re-use the ISMS aligned with ISO/IEC 27001:2013 for your privacy management, IT governance, extended security management and many other areas without reinventing the wheel.
