ISO 27017 Cloud Services Certification

ISO 27017 – Code of practice for information security controls based on ISO/IEC 27002 for cloud services

Are you required to have ISO 27017 Certification? Would you like assurance that your organisation has effective Cloud information security controls in place? If so, Teamwork IMS consultants can help.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS

About ISO 27017

In conjunction with ISO 27001, ISO 27017 provides enhanced controls for cloud service providers and cloud service customers. The Code of Practice clarifies both party’s roles and responsibilities to help make cloud services as safe and secure as the rest of the data included in a certified information management system.

ISO 27017 can be applied to organisations of all sizes, providing Cloud Services. Achieving certification to ISO 27017 provides independent assurance to your existing and potential Cloud Service 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.

WE CAN HELP YOU ACHIEVE ISO 27017 CERTIFICATION

ISO 27017 Support

Teamwork consultants will review your organisation’s current Cloud Services information security controls against the requirements of the ISO 27017 Standard, and work with you to develop a plan and implement the necessary controls to achieve compliance with ISO 27017.

If required, our consultants will then assist you to ultimately achieve ISO 27017 certification

COMBINING ISO 27017 WITH OTHER ISO STANDARDS

Integrated Management Systems

Are you considering achieving combined certifications for ISO 27017 alongside other Standards such as ISO 27018 (Code of Practice for Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in Public Clouds Acting as PII Processors), ISO 27701 (Privacy Information Management), or ISO 20000 IT Service Management for example? Do you already have certification to other ISO Standards and want to integrate ISO 27017 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 27017 CERTIFICATION

Protecting Cloud Services

In today’s climate, the confidentiality, availability and integrity of Cloud services is critical to the operation and survival of many businesses.

ISO/IEC 27017 is an extension to ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management. The Standard provides a code of practice for ensuring the appropriate security of your Cloud Services.

Teamwork ISO 27017 consultants will conduct reviews of your current security controls for your Cloud Services, including current information security policies, procedures and practices and examine their effectiveness.

Teamwork can then help your organisation to implement ISO 27017 compliant cloud security controls that are proportionate to your organisation and effective in the protection of your Cloud Services.
