  • connection between BCP and security

    Dear Mr. Košuti?, our CISO and Organisational Officer both see the close connection between BCP and information security in 27001 Standard. The question is whether to put CISO and BCP together in our organisation (perhaps in Compliance) or not. Do you see the connection between them in 27001 Standard and where (how to argue that) ? I work in a financial institution (bank). Thank you in advance and best regards!
  • Statement of Applicability & auditor's comments on effectiveness of controls

    I have just watched the tutorial video on "How to Write ISO 27001 Statement of Applicability" and noticed that there wasn't a column for the certification bodies' opinion on the effectiveness of the applicable controls. According to the tutorial video this is not a mandatory field. Where then does the certification body document their opinion on effectiveness of each of the controls? Secondly, can the certification body issue certification if there are any weaknesses in how way some controls are implemented or must they all be 100% effective. Regards. CM
  • How does IT complete a BIA

  • Transition from ISO 27001:2005 to 27001:2013 standard

    I wanted to know about the transition from ISO 27001:2005 to 27001:2013 standard. If some company is 27001:2005 certified and their certification is expiring in 2014, then in that case on which version they need to get audited and certified? In how much time, in between, any company can do transition from ISO 27001:2005 to the new one?
  • When does RTO begin?

    Does RTO begin at time of incident or after assessment of the impact of an incident? To be ISO 22301 certified, will the organization’s definition of the starting point for RTO have to match the ISO’s definition of RTO. The published ISO definition merely states “following an incident” and it is not clear of the specific start time of RTO.
  • Mandatory processes for ISO 27001:2013 external communications relevant to ISMS

    1. Please see clause 7.4e: ....the internal shall include "the processes by which communication shall be effected"..... Does it mean the standard is mandating a 'Communications process'? 2. Apart from the above, I think the standard mandates only Risk Assessment and Risk Treatment processes/ plans. All other mandated docs are implementation level evidences. Am I right?
  • Questions about risk assessment/treatment.

    We have assessed our information security risks and found around 30 risks (We are a small company of 7 people). And only one of those risks does not currently have controls in place which make it acceptable.
