Information security is one of the fastest growing areas of concern for businesses.

ISO 27001 is the global standard for managing digital assets, including financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties. Aside from ISO certification, there are ways to assess the controls you have in place against the leading Australian, New Zealand and international frameworks for cyber security. 

An Information Security Review with our qualified Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) Lead Auditor can determine how your information security controls perform against these trusted benchmarks in information security management. This can be highly valuable for any business, whether you are looking to achieve ISO 27001 certification or not.

Which controls are assessed? 

During an Information Security Review, we will assess your information security measures against the relevant number of basic controls that are applicable to your organisation (generally 5 to 8 of the below). These are prescribed by the leading cyber security frameworks across industry and government, including the Australian Cyber Security Centre's Essential Eight, the New Zealand Government's CERT NZ, UK Cyber Essentials and Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Top Threats.
