I’m assuming that by external audit you refer to the certification audit.

Considering that, it is important to note that an internal audit is a mandatory requirement for ISO 27001 certification, so it needs to be performed before the certification audit.

To perform an internal audit you should consider these steps:

  • Develop an internal audit procedure
  • Plan your audits, considering dates, criteria, and scope
  • Develop checklists to help you not forget something during the audit
  • Elaborate on the audit report which will include the non-compliances and other findings

These articles will provide you with a further explanation of internal audit:
