Implementing an information security management system (ISMS) is a great way to optimise information security controls, reduce the likelihood of cyber attacks, effectively respond to security threats, and reap the benefits of a centrally managed framework that aligns with international standards, such as ISO 27001. ISMS implementation also plays a foundational role in helping companies maximise their return on security investment, enhance their reputation and gain an advantage over their competitors.
Today, the large majority of established companies have a precise focus on increasing their resilience to cyber attacks. Whilst preventing cyber attacks altogether is the ideal, albeit unlikely scenario, a sound mitigation strategy is just as important. The MOD1 ISMS implementation service provides a structured and comprehensive framework for the protection of your organisation’s information assets through effective risk management and ensures that security and privacy controls are aligned with business objectives.
MOD1 ISMS implementation services can help you identify and prioritise your company’s information risk, streamline the ISMS implementation process and prepare you for certification to ISO27001, ISO27017, ISO27018, or ISO27701. By systematically breaking the process down into specific phases, our team ensures your workforce can acclimatise to the changes.

ISMS Implementation Overview
Our phased approach facilitates efficient implementation whilst taking into account each client’s individual requirements.

Define the high level processes (risk assessment, change management, competence management, monitoring and audit) in accordance with client requirements.
Perform an initial risk assessment, make a comparison of existing controls with the appropriate framework and document a statement of applicability.
Establishment or revision of information security policy and objectives taking account of the results of the risk assessment. Development of training and awareness programs.
Implementation of the risk treatment plan.
Define program metrics, record and correct nonconformities.
Review and sign-off of the implementation with the client.
Plan for the execution of necessary improvements to the ISMS in line with changes to the organisational context, scope or risk profile.
