Finding an auditor

I have been taking a look at your offering, attended yesterday’s Webinar and will attend more and for now it feels like your offering could very much fit our requirements.

We are likely one of those ‘could do it almost by ourselves – but need help with some items’ companies. 

Me personally have not rolled 27001 yet but used to work with controls, procedures, policies, etc. 

The biggest question mark for me right now is how to find an auditor that could fit in this approach. Do you have any recommendations on that?

From your question is not clear if you are referring to an internal auditor or a certification auditor, so the answer will cover both situations.

The “DIY with expert support” approach does not change the main points you need to consider.

When looking for an auditor to perform an internal audit you should consider:

  • the knowledge about your industry
  • reputation
  • pricing

We are not aware of specific jobs, boards, or professional associations of ISO 27001 internal auditors, so your best approach would be looking for them on professional social networks like LinkedIn, ISO 27001 security group on Google Groups, or organizations which issue certificates for information security professionals like ISC2 or ISACA.

For further information, see:

When looking for an auditor to perform a certification audit you need in fact to look for a certification body, and for this, there are several factors you should take into account when selecting a certification body, please read this article:

The main certification bodies for ISO 27001 are:
