  • Has established an information security management system that is suitable for the type of information that needs to be secured.
  • analyzes and understands customer needs and expectations, as well as the relevant statutory and regulatory requirements related to its information security scope
  • Identifies and analyzes the risks related to information security and applies the activities needed to reduce those risks.

  • has ensured the availability of resources necessary to support the operation and monitoring of these processes
  • identifies and handles nonconformities and information security incidents
  • has implemented an effective internal audit and management review process

The audit is based on a sampling process of the available information and that consequently there will always be an element of uncertainty present in auditing evidence, which may be reflected in the audit findings. 

What accredited certification to ISO 27001 does not mean

  • That the information is secured in 100%
  • That any breaches or events can occur
  • That the technologies used by the organization were checked by the certification body and were found 100% effective
