HISTORY OF ISO 27001:2013

BS 7799 was a standard originally published by BSI Group in 1995. It was written by the United Kingdom Government Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), and consisted of several parts.

The first part,containing the best practices for information security management, was revised in 1998; after a lengthy discussion in the worldwide standards bodies, it was eventually adopted by ISO as ISO/IEC 17799, Information Technology - Code of practice for information security management. in 2000. ISO/IEC 17799 was then revised in June 2005 and finally incorporated in the ISO 27000 series of standards as ISO/IEC 27002 in July 2007.

The second part of BS7799 was first published by BSI in 1999, known as BS 7799 Part 2, titled Information Security Management Systems - Specification with guidance for use. BS 7799-2 focused on how to implement an Information security management system (ISMS), referring to the information security management structure and controls identified in BS 7799-2. This later became ISO/IEC 27001:2005. BS 7799 Part 2 was adopted by ISO as ISO/IEC 27001 in November 2005.

BS 7799 Part 3 was published in 2005, covering risk analysis and management. It aligns with ISO/IEC 27001:2005.

ROAD MAP FOR ISO 27001:2013

Roadmap and plan for ISO 27001 Covering key Points:

    Training on Standard Requirement Organizations needs to have the knowledge, skills and capability to support a standard beyond the certification audit.
    GAP analysis: We do gap analysis & IT Risk analysis to identify what you do and what ISO 27001 recommends to do, it may be process addition or modification to adopt International Best Practices.
    System Document Development: based on the training the client reviews their own management system and evaluates their existing Security policies and procedures and modifies them to comply with the best practice.
    Internal Auditor: Training Regular internal audits against the system are the requirements of the standard.
    Standard Implementation: Client must ensure that their employees are adopting the new protocols and procedures inline of the standards.
    Internal Audit: Client conducts an internal audit of their management system implementation. They must examine their own processes and procedures in terms of effectiveness.
    Management Review: Client to discuss the future of their management system with their senior management about the strengths and weakness of the system to identify areas for continual improvement
    Pre-assessment: A pre-assessment audit done prior to and outside the formal scope of certification to identify area that need more work whilst also preparing key employees for the eventual audits. A useful audit to rehearse ,align and de-bug your system:
    Stage 1 - Assessment: Document Review
    Stage 2 - Assessment: Run through of the implemented systems.
    Certification Issue A certificate is provided to your organization.
    Continuing assessment Visit
    A routine surveillance visit which every year or 12 months cycle over a three year period to monitor and evaluate continuing systems performance.

    Re certification of your management system is required every three years after the initial certification and covers a comprehensive review of the whole system. It may include an additional stage 1 review where significant problems have been encountered during the course of the certification cycle.
