The business case for ISO 27001 certification
At MOD1, we recognise you as a digital healthcare leader whose goal is to assure stakeholders that your organisation is committed to safeguarding sensitive patient data by employing a structured approach to managing information risk that aligns with legal, regulatory and business requirements.
To achieve this, you will be required to implement an information security management system (ISMS) that can be certified to the ISO/IEC 27001 international standard for information security management.
When embarking on a project to certify an ISMS, one of the challenges you face is accurately assessing your existing information security management capabilities and compliance gaps compared to the ISO 27001 certification requirements.
The problem is exacerbated when your organisation lacks the specialist expertise necessary to approximate the proposed scope of your management system implementation and determine the required resources (people, time, and finances) to pass the ISO 27001 certification audit.
If unresolved, this can seriously delay your implementation and place your organisation at heightened risk of a data breach, loss of revenue, damaged reputation, operational downtime and legal liability.
The MOD1 ISO 27001 gap analysis service
That’s why we created the MOD1 ISO 27001 gap analysis service, a comprehensive assessment that provides the following benefits:
- indicates what you need to do, how long it might take and how much it might cost
- assesses the feasibility of undertaking an ISO27001 certification project
- serves as input to subsequent scoping and road-mapping exercises
- informs your leadership of critical problem areas and concerns
- reduces effort and cost by identifying duplicate processes
- outlines the requirements that you have already met
- identifies problems and areas for improvement
What are the deliverables?
The gap analysis culminates in a comprehensive report highlighting deficiencies and providing recommendations on measures that you need to meet the certification objectives.
You also benefit from a management presentation that walks through the content of the report to help provide guidance around the issues observed and the most logical steps forward based on your certification goals.
Our insights help you and your team approximate the proposed scope of your management system implementation and determine the resources (people, time, and finances) necessary to pass the ISO/IEC 27001 certification audit.
Unlike other ISO 27001 compliance services providers, all of our consultants hold the ISO/IEC 27001 Lead Implementer accreditation and are accustomed to working in the highly regulated digital health sector.
We appreciate that no two organisations are the same, so we tailor our services to each client’s size, complexity, risk appetite, and budget.
