ISO 27001: Time to Update Your Qualifications

Last year, a new version of ISO 27001 was published, introducing several changes in the way organisations are expected to manage information security.

There are new requirements related to planned changes and how organisations should deal with them, as well as a greater focus on the needs and expectations of interested parties. 

There are also significant deviations in the Standard’s structure, with the 14 control categories replaced and the total number of controls decreasing from 114 to 93. 

If organisations are to maintain ISO 27001 compliance after the transition period, they need to understand how these alterations affect them and the steps they must take to meet their requirements.

Why you need to refresh your ISO 27001 qualification

Although ISO 27001 doesn’t differ massively from the previous iteration of standard, anyone who is planning to implement or maintain the Standard’s requirements must be familiar with the alterations.

Organisations that are certified to ISO 27001:2013 have a three-year transition period to make the necessary changes.

As part of that, information security professions must update their ISO 27001 qualifications to continue their professional development and meet the needs of future employers.
