Certification according to VDA®-ISA/ TISAX® would not have been achieved so quickly if we had not used the great ISMS Toolkit templates.

Moreover, the helpful and friendly advice we received was a great help and was also a lot of fun. Many thanks for this.

Frequently asked questions

Have questions about the ISMS Toolkit?

Talk to our expert and see how your company can benefit from the ISMS Toolkit
The ISMS Toolkit is a collection of tools and templates designed to help you implement an information security management system (ISMS) that is compliant with the two most popular security standards: ISO 27001(the international standard for information security management) and VDA® ISA (TISAX®) (the information security standard for the automotive industry). The toolkit includes templates and guidance to create all ISO 27001:2013 and VDA® ISA policies, controls, processes, and procedures to meet the requirements of both standards, protect customer data, and make your business more secure.
ISO 27001:2013 is a leading international information security standard, specifying the requirements for an organisation’s information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is a documented set of policies, procedures, processes, and controls designed to address all aspects of information security within your organisation. The standard was first published in 2005 and has been updated incrementally since then. ISMS is based on the fundamental concepts of information security, including people, processes, and technology. ISO 27001:2013 is recognised by governments and regulatory agencies across the globe. We’ve created this toolkit to help you get up and running with ISO 27001 quickly and easily, using best practice documentation methods.
TISAX® stands for “Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange”. VDA® ISA (TISAX®) is a control system for security information. It provides guidelines to ensure an appropriate level of security for IT systems in the automotive industry. VDA® ISA (TISAX®) refers to the management of information technology as a critical infrastructure. In addition to data protection, this includes all aspects of Information Security, such as confidentiality, integrity, and availability. It consists of requirements from VDA® ISA (Verband der Automobilindustrie Information Security Assessment).

Yes. We recommend getting a copy of the ISO 27001 standard from the ISO® official website and VDA® ISA website. First of all, without one, you may find that you spend more time than necessary trying to locate answers to your questions. Having the actual source document will help you better understand all the information needed for the implementation process.

And secondly, during the certification process, you will need to show the auditor which criteria your ISMS is built against. So de facto, it is required for certification.

No, we don’t offer certification. Our goal is to help you set up an information security management system yourself with the ISMS Toolkit and prepare your organisation for the certification audit. To arrange certification, you need to contact a Registered Certification Body (RCB) in your region, who will conduct a two-stage audit to verify that you are compliant with the standard requirements.

Normally, the whole process can take up to 12-18 months, depending on the size and complexity of your organization. There are a number of stages that need to be completed before you can be standard certified. Even though many organisations focus on Information Security, the implementation of ISMS is not easy for everyone. There is a lot of work involved in preparing for an audit and being ready for certification. Without proper planning, the certification cost can be extremely high, with little to no return on investment.

From our experience, we know it’s possible to achieve certification much faster (4-6 months) and with less expense. And a lot of our customers actually do that. The ISMS Toolkit helps you cut certification time from 1-1.5 years to a few months, which saves thousands of your budget in the process.

In addition, there are further conditions that you should consider:

  • Having an information security responsible / project manager that is ISO or IT from the start who is committed and can work every day or every other day on ensuring that tasks are carried out, and defined processes are taking place.
  • Top management must commit and transfer responsibility to release documents to this person.
  • Having an existing certification like 9001 helps to achieve the best target of 3-4 months.
  • The organisation’s size has a lower impact (e.g. 100-500 employees often the same), more number of locations is a bigger impact.
  • Motivation to adopt new processes thorough departments.
  • Close working with HR and IT.

ISO27001 is one of the top security management systems available. Setting up an Information Security Management System (ISMS) for your company can be a lot to take on. It requires many risk assessments, policies, and procedures which all need to be reviewed and put together by someone in-house who has the necessary technical know-how. There are plenty of information security consulting companies out there that can provide an ISMS. However, they often charge a lot for their services and require additional onboarding projects. While external consultants are a good option for top-level companies, they are too expensive and time-consuming for small to medium enterprises. The cost of frequently hiring an external consultant is pretty high and requires additional time to find and manage them.

Small companies with fewer than 100 employees can expect to pay less than €10,000. Companies with over 100 employees and over €10 million in revenue can expect to pay more than €50,000.

The ISMS Toolkit is designed to eliminate large amounts of money, time, and human resources spent reinventing the wheel by using proven ready-made templates and processes. Focus on what is essential for your life and business instead. Prevent thousands spent on consultants delivering the same toolkit and save over 90% compared to the cost of an ISMS consultant with no effect on the documentation quality and business outcomes.

Doing the wrong things for the right reasons is still doing the wrong things. Without a clear strategy, step-by-step plan, and the help of a third party, achieving certification takes months of research, trial, and error. That’s why we created the ISMS Toolkit.

ISMS Toolkit gives you clear overview of the whole process.

See exactly what needs to be done. A well-organised and structured system that gives you an overview of the full scope, timeline, and all the information you need. Get a clear understanding of how much technical work is to be done so you can plan and estimate your project before going into detail.

The audit gives you the opportunity to see how your information security management system (ISMS) stacks up to the requirements of ISO27001. The risk of not passing the ISO27001 audit is very real. If your information security management system (ISMS) is not in line with the ISO27001 requirements, you run the risk of non-compliance, which could lead to hefty financial penalties or even losing customers. This is why you need a plan in place so that you can be as prepared as possible before going into the audit.

Internal audit:

An internal audit can’t be failed but can lead to poor results. There is no direct influence on the external audits besides consuming time. The most common result is remedy discrepancies, so you need to re-do it. To do so, you can always contact us to look into results to remedy discrepancies and help you develop a better solution.

External audit:

The audit can result in one of three possible outcomes: compliance, temporary certification, or non-compliance. The most common one is compliance. This is where everything is in order, and there are no outstanding issues. However, sometimes an organisation will receive a temporary certificate due to outstanding issues that need addressing. The last outcome is non-compliance. This means you’re not audited properly, or your systems don’t meet the requirements, so you require at least one improvement action before the next audit date.

We suggest they are! Most of the documents described in security standards are mandatory. These documents act as proof of a proper Information Security Management System. To verify your compliance, an auditor will review all the ISMS documentation, which means that what is not written down in your documentation needs to be proven in another way. Having all required ISMS documentation in place is a key element of successful security standards certification.
Yes, sure. We believe information security doesn’t need to be hard. Our goal is to give companies the tools they need to tackle the topic of “information security” themselves. The ISMS Toolkit is designed to help you implement ISMS yourself with step-by-step guidance and support without time and budget consuming external consulting services.
Yes, but it can be a variety of people, like an IT manager, quality manager, or something close to IT. A data protection officer is also possible. We also offer the position of external ISO as a bookable service.
Yes, we can help you with the auditor assessment. In addition to support and assistance through the process, we would be happy to advise and support you with audits with our customisable service options. Contact us for more information.
