Frequently asked questions

ISO 27001 is an ISO standard about information security, which you can use to build an Information Security Management System that will help you keep your information confidential, available, complete and accurate. If you’re new to ISO 27001 and management system standards, read our blog What is an Information Security Management System (ISMS) and how does it relate to ISO 27001?

Over the years our ISO consultants have developed a set of tools, templates and techniques to help our clients achieve ISO 27001 as quickly, hassle-free and economically as possible.

We’ve developed a process, containing all the steps to achieving certification. The compliance checklist is one of those tools.

The certification process for ISO 27001 requires two audits to take place, 2-3 months apart. 

  • The first audit (Stage 1) verifies that the documentation you have put in place conforms to the standard to make sure all requirements are covered;  
  • The second audit (Stage 2) verifies that the controls are in place and working, policies and procedures are adhered to and ISMS activities are being tracked and implemented.

This ISO 27001 Acceptable Use Policy Template was exactly what I needed! It was super easy to download and even easier to customise. The language was clear, and it covered all the essential points. I didn't have to start from scratch, which saved me a ton of time.

The template was pretty decent. It covered most of what we needed, but we did have to add a few specific details to match our company’s policies. Overall, it’s a good resource if you’re looking to save time and ensure you're covering the main points of ISO 27001 acceptable use. I’d say it’s definitely worth checking out.
