What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is the international standard for information security management. Updated in 2013 – referred to as IEC/ISO 27001:2013 – this internationally recognised standard is the benchmark to maintaining customer and stakeholder confidentiality

The advancement of information systems and services over recent decades drives for the need to implement adequate security controls in order to identify, manage, and protect vulnerable corporate data and information from security threats and risks.

It is thereby critical for the smooth operation of an organisation.


Accredited certification to IEC/ISO 27001 demonstrates that the organisation prioritises its existing and potential customers’ confidentiality and the information assets of its corporate stakeholders.

It demonstrates that good security practices are at the forefront of the organisation’s business strategy. Essentially, IEC/ISO 27001 certification:

  • Allows for the secure exchange of information
  • Maintains consistency in the delivery of your service or product
  • Manages and minimises risk exposure
  • Ensures you are meeting legal obligations
  • Provides you with a competitive advantage

Industries affiliated with this standard

IEC/ISO 27001 is applicable across all industries. This includes, but is not limited to:

Frequently Asked Questions

What industries do you work with?

As a leading provider of consultancy services we cover a wide range of disciplines including safety compliance, quality compliance and environmental compliance across high-risk industries.

We work with high risk industries including construction, manufacturing, aviation, professional services, healthcare, and transport.

What can all these management systems do for my business?

Management Systems alone won’t add any value to your business or your staff. Although, if a Management System is designed to fit into the existing operations of the business, and with input from the expected staff who will be using the system, then you will start seeing improvement.

Depending on the type of Management System and what standards it is designed to comply with, you can expect the following improvements:

  • Less instances of the organisation quoting/tendering for a project/client that they cannot actually provide the product or service for
  • Better responses to customer complaints
  • A mechanism for identifying issues and then systematically fixing them and preventing them from occurring again
  • If certified, recognition from your customers for achieving certification and increased confidence from prospective customers

These are some of the benefits of a Management System although there are many more that an organisation can achieve if it adopts the system into its core operations.

What is Third Party Certification and who does it?
Third Party Certification is the process of having your Management System audited by an independent third party. This type of auditing is typically used by Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs) who are regulated by a government organisation known as JAS-ANZ. These CABs can issue registered certificates of compliance to various standards such as ISO 9001, AS 4801, and ISO 14001.
Are there any hidden costs?
Unlike many competitors who operate by a time and materials model, we operate by a fixed-fee model. We provide clients with proposals that outline the methodology for the project, the deliverables, and the total cost.
Is the initial consultation obligation free?
Yes, the initial consultation meeting with you to gauge what certification would be suitable for the business and also get an understanding of how the business works is free so that we can provide an accurate proposal.
