Overview: SDLC GAP Analysis

SDLC GAP Analysis involves a detailed review of your software or application’s current state of compliance, focusing on security posture and framework. This assessment helps identify areas and controls within the organization that are failing certain parameters defined by the desired state. This process sets the course for corrective action and realignment with compliance requirements, aiming to improve security and risk management.


GAP analysis includes specific steps that involves:

  • Gathering information on the software or application’s current state security posture

  • Evaluation of cyber security strategy.

  • Identification of the organization’s critical assets such as data.

  • Evaluation of comprehensive cyber security risk.

  • Provide recommendations on security controls, processes, and procedures.

Why do organization need it?

Organizations need GAP analysis to identify and address areas where their actual performance falls short of their desired performance levels. GAP analysis is a strategic planning method that helps organizations evaluate the current state of software or applications and identify areas for improvement, enabling them to allocate resources effectively and enhance processes and outcomes. By comparing the current state to a future target, organizations can benchmark themselves against their key performance indicators and set targets for improvement.

Our Approach

Our first step is to clearly define the objectives of the GAP analysis. We aim to identify weaknesses, compliance gaps, and opportunities for enhancement within our cybersecurity framework. The scope will encompass all relevant areas of our cybersecurity practices, policies, and procedures.

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-analysis. 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 analysiss 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.

Finally, we'll assist you with the ISO 27001 certification process. This entails a thorough understanding of the various documentation requirements as well as implementation validation.
