ISO 27001 Certification – Guidance on Security Controls

The best and most famous part of ISO 27001 is its annexure A which provides essential tools to manage security of information by a company. There is a need for a company to keep all the 114 controls in mind to accomplish their own detailed risk assessment. It is to be noted that not all the controls are mandatory for implementation; rather a company is to select all applicable controls out of the given controls in the annexure A of the standard.

The risk assessment therefore is the most important step which has to be performed to create an effective information security system in a company. It is also essential that beside finding out the most appropriate way to avoid a risk , it is necessary to assess the importance of each risk so that only the most important risk are taken care off.

The best way to do the risk assessment is to make a list of all assets of your company and find out all possible threats and vulnerabilities to your assets and its likely impact. Once the most unacceptable risk are highlighted then apply security controls from the annexure A of the standard ISO 27001to minimize the risk.

The controls in the annexure A of ISO 27001 are therefore a comprehensive list or a catalogue for your company’s Information Security Management System (ISMS), which can guide you to use security controls which are applicable to your own need and requirements.
