1. To meet the ISO standards for Operations Security and Security Incident Management, is implementation of a cybersecurity tool necessary?

Answer:  ISO 27001 does not prescribe technologies or tools to be used. The need for their use should be evaluated considering the results of risk assessment and applicable legal requirements (e.g., laws, regulations, or contracts). If there are no relevant risks, nor legal requirements, demanding the application of cybersecurity tools, you do not need to implement them.

2. How much history of “records” is needed to show the auditor evidence of newly formed operational processes?

Answer: Please note that ISO 27001 does not require a minimum period of records (i.e., a minimum period of the ISMS operation before the certification), however, some certification bodies do have such requirements and some don't, so you should contact your certification body to confirm what criteria it applies.

3. Typically, once the ISMS prep is completed, how long after can a company get certified?

Answer: A company can request a certification audit as soon as it has all required documents and records to evidence the controls are implemented and working properly, and that the ISMS is being managed. The proper timeframe to request a certification audit will depend on the criteria used by your certification body.


4. Typically, for a small company, less than 20 employees, 5 sites, how long does ISMS project take?

Answer: The time to implement ISO 27001 will depend on many variables, like the size of the organization, the complexity of the scope, the resources available, etc., but in general, for clients of this size our ISO 27001 Documentation Toolkit usually finish the implementation in 4 to 6 months.
