Overview of ISO 27001:2022

This first part introduces ISO 27001, explaining what it is, how it's used, and the purpose and benefits of an Information Security Management System (ISMS).

ISO 27001 Requirements

This part takes a step-by-step look at the relevant clauses in the ISO 27001:2022 standard in order to understand what they mean and what your company needs to do to comply with them.

ISO 27001:2022 Control Objectives and Controls

There are 93 controls in ISO 27001:2022, 11 of which were introduced as part of the 2022 revision.

The controls are grouped into 4 categories and include considerations such as threat intelligence, information deletion, web filtering, secure coding, and data leakage prevention.

Documented Information

Clear, well-written, and non-bureaucratic documentation is an important part of an Information Security Management System (ISMS).

A point worth noting here is that documents are used for storing and sharing information, while records are essentially hard copies of results (such as from an audit) or evidence of activities that have been performed. And while documents get revised from to time and are generally kept up-to-date, records are static and never revised.

Risk Management

Assessing and managing risk forms a core part of ISO 27001. The process involves identifying potential sources of risk, such as vulnerabilities that a cyber criminal could exploit or errors that employees might make.

The next step is to determine the likelihood of the risk occurring and to formulate a plan either to prevent the risk from happening or control and mitigate any damage if it does occur.

Audit Process

This part gives an overview of internal auditing and includes a video tutorial that gives a practical "real-life" demonstration of an auditor conducting the opening meeting.

Audit Terms and Definitions, and Roles and Responsibilities

Terms and definitions are introduced and explained, as well as a discussion of the roles and responsibilities expected from a company's internal auditor. This module also includes a video tutorial that gives a practical "real-life" demonstration of audit questions and answers.

Performing an Audit

This part includes a video tutorial that gives a practical "real-life" demonstration of an auditor conducting the closing meeting.

Nonconformities and Corrective Action

Nonconformities (also known as non-conformities or non-conformances) are the "gaps" in your ISMS that don't fully comply with ISO 27001:2022 requirements. Corrective actions are actions taken to address these gaps. Keeping a record of all such nonconformities and corrective actions is a crucial part of auditing.

Who Should Take ISO 27001:2022 Lead Auditor Training?
