  • Can the risk be accepted and the control not applied?

    We are in the initial stages of obtaining our ISO-27001 certification and in doing so we are up to the Pre-certification step. During the pre-certification we reviewed our Statement of Applicability and in particular our Out-of-Scope controls. One control that was found to be a low risk during the Risk Assessment and senior management has agreed to accept the residual risk; and we determined it be out of scope, is being demanded by the auditor to be in-scope. Is that permitted? Based on our scope and boundaries as well as documented exclusions, the control does not come into play. I’m trying to gather some additional information on the determination of in-scope vs. out-of-scope.

  • How to implement all policies and procedures for stage 2

    I've received this question: We have passed Stage 1, Could you please suggest how to implement all policies and procedures for stage 2 and what exactly they check on Stage 2. Answer: At Stage 2 audit, the certification auditors will check if you really operate according to your policies and procedures - so for example if you have written that you will perform backup every 2 hours, then the auditor will check if this is really done so. So the answer to your question is: you have to observe all the rules you have documented.

    ISO 27001: 2013 is said to no longer be used the process approach. Based on that, it means that the ISMS is to apply to the whole organization, or I can continue implementing an ISMS to a specific company process as long as you define (as always should be) the scope where you will deploy.
