ISO 27001 Gap Analysis

Building an ISMS (information security management system) that meets the requirements of ISO 27001 can be a challenging project.

ISO 27001’s breadth of applicability can make it difficult for organisations to determine how to apply the Standard effectively and economically, so conducting an ISO 27001 gap analysis is an important starting point when putting a prioritised plan in place.

What is an ISO 27001 Gap Analysis?

An ISO 27001 gap analysis provides a high-level overview of what needs to be done to achieve certification and enables you to assess and compare your organisation’s existing information security arrangements against the requirements of ISO 27001.

It is the ideal solution for organisations that need to measure their current state of compliance against the Standard and enables you to scope your ISMS parameters across all business functions.
