ISO 27001 Certification

Are you required to have ISO 27001 Certification? Would you like assurance that your organisation has effective Information Security controls in place? If so, Teamwork IMS consultants can help.


About ISO 27001

The ISO 27001 Standard is globally recognised to help organisations manage their Information Security controls. ISO 27001 can be applied to companies of all sizes in the private sector, but also to universities, charities, and public sector organisations. Achieving UKAS-accredited certification to ISO 27001 provides independent assurance to your existing and potential customers and other interested parties that you have appropriate Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability controls in place. It can also give you that vital edge over your competitors.


Teamwork consultants will review your organisation’s current Information Security Management processes against the requirements of the ISO 27001 Standard, and work with you to develop a plan and implement the necessary controls to achieve compliance with ISO 27001. If required, our consultants will then assist you to ultimately achieve UKAS-accredited ISO 27001 certification.


Are you considering achieving combined certifications for ISO 27001 alongside other Standards such as ISO 9001 Quality or ISO 20000 IT Service Management for example? Do you already have certification to other ISO Standards and want to integrate ISO 27001 requirements with them? Teamwork IMS consultants specialise in this combined approach, that is, implementing Integrated Management Systems.

For organisations who need to achieve two or more ISO standards, there are significant advantages in implementing these standards in parallel rather than taking a phased approach, in particular the internal and external incremental costs can be significantly reduced. There are also significant resource economies to be achieved with projects addressing multiple ISO standards e.g. one gap analysis, one implementation programme, less potential for duplication and more effective integration of your management systems. Maintenance of an integrated management system is also more efficient in terms of audits, management review, documentation, and continued assessment.

ISO 27001 Certification - Protecting vital information assets

The confidentiality, availability and integrity of information is critical to the operation and survival of businesses. Whilst organisations believe they have a clear understanding of the risks they face, only a small subsection formally assess those risks, resulting in businesses that may be insecure with expenditure in technology and information security either too low or not targeted at the important risks. Teamwork ISO 27001 consultants will conduct reviews of security threats and vulnerabilities within your organisation’s systems and examine their potential business impact. These will not only relate to IT but will encompass all sensitive and mission-critical information held within your business.

Teamwork can then help your organisation to implement an ISO 27001 compliant information security management system ensuring the selection of adequate and proportionate security controls and help your organisations to protect your information assets and those of your customers and partners.
