Frequently asked questions

ISO27001® 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 is recognised by governments and regulatory agencies across the globe.
The goal of ISO 27001® is to assure the effectiveness of information security management systems (ISMS), which are designed to protect corporate and customer information and the business itself from cyber-attacks, malicious software, and accidents. Designed to be applicable worldwide, ISO 27001® protects critical information assets and the organisation’s reputation and ability to conduct business. The goal of the ISO 27001® standard is to allow an organisation to have good management around information security. It helps the business know where they are regarding cyber threats and how they can improve their security posture. The standard explains how organisations need to manage these risks and implement effective strategies.
Using external consultants, small companies with fewer than 100 employees can expect to pay around €10,000 – 20,000. 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 the vast sums of money, time, and human resources spent on reinventing the wheel by using proven readymade templates and processes. Focus on what is essential for your life and business instead. Avoid the 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.
From our experience, we know it’s possible to achieve certification within four to six months with the help of ISMS Connect and saving thousands from your budget in the process. Some additional hints from our side:
  • It’s best to have an information security responsible person/project manager that is ISO or an IT specialist from the start. One who is committed, can work every day or every other day to ensure tasks are carried out, and that defined processes are put in place.
  • Top management must commit and transfer responsibility to release documents to this person.
  • Having an existing cert. like 9001® helps achieve the best target of 3-4 months.
  • Organisational size has a lower impact (e.g., 100-500 employees is often the same), the number of locations has a greater impact.
  • Motivation to adopt new processes through the departments.
  • Close working between HR and IT.
