Our Approach

Gap analysis or Compliance Pre-Assessment helps in understanding your organization's current data privacy practices. It works on identifying the areas where you fall short of ISO 27701 requirements.

At this stage, we will create policies for the client's organization that are in accordance with the ISO27001 guidelines/framework and are relevant to ISMS. ISO27001 policies include the following: Data Retention Policy, Data Protection Policy, Information Security Policy, and Access Control Policy.

An ISO 27001 Gap Analysis is also referred to as a Compliance Examination or Pre-Assessment. The Gap Analysis evaluates the organization's current level of Standard compliance as well as the scope of its ISMS parameters across all business functions. It gives businesses the information they need, as well as recommendations for controls that may need to be implemented to close gaps.

Following the development of policies in order to put the ISMS into action. This helps us determine the relevance and importance of information security in the business. The first step in implementing ISMS is to create a scope and security policy statement. The results of these assessments are used to categorize the risks into different risk levels, allowing the client to take appropriate action.

We will proceed to get your organization ISO27001 certified after we have completed all of the preceding steps. This will entail a thorough examination of your organization's ISMS to ensure that it meets the requirements of the standard. Audits are performed to gather information about the client and the organization that can be used to highlight areas that may require special attention.
