About ISO 27001
The ISO 27001 standard outlines requirements for organizations to establish, implement, maintain, and improve an Information Security Management System. The ISO 27001 is currently the 4th largest of all ISO standards in terms of number of certificates issued.
While the ISO 27001 standard was one of the first standards to adopt the “Common Framework” which all ISO standards are moving toward or have moved already, it is the only standard which contains a list of Control Objectives and Controls under the so-called Annex A. These 113 controls, organized into 14 clauses and security categories, are required and therefore exclusions have to be justified.
Conforming to the ISO 27001 standard and recommended controls from Annex A, can help organizations assess and treat information security risks, and most importantly prevent information security risks from materializing.
Annex A – Control Objectives:
- Information Security Policy
- Organization of Information Security
- Human Resource Security
- Asset Management
- Access Control
- Physical and Environmental Security
- Operations Security
- Communications Security
- Systems Acquisition, Development and Maintenance
- Supplier Relationships
- Information Security Incident Management
- Information Security Aspects of Business Continuity Management
Mireaux Management Solutions has extensive experience conducting various types of audits against the ISO 27001 standard, including the following:

Frequently Asked Questions
When implemented correctly, organizations stand to benefit greatly by adhering to ISO 27001 requirements and principles. Here are some of the most relevant benefits that can be gained from proper ISO 27001 implementation:
- Significantly increases information security awareness throughout the organization

- Improves reputation through elimination or reduction of information security incidents or events
- Creates a framework for future continual improvement
The current version of ISO 27001 is 2013. The previous version was 2005. ISO 27001 was actually one of the first standards to migrate to the Common Framework. All certifications are currently issued to the 2013 version.
Although it is easy to associate information security with data processing centers, the standard can be applied to any type of industry or sector. In fact when applied correctly, the standard itself and the controls can greatly help companies shield themselves against internal or external information security threats.
Depending on the products or services your organization offers, controls from the Annex A such as E-Commerce, may not be applicable to your company and can therefore be excluded with due justification.
Since 2004, Mireaux has been involved with the ISO 27001 standard, and has seen it evolve through the 2005 and 2013 versions. Furthermore, Mireaux has been certified to this standard since 2014, and has, as a result become an authority on it, by living the standard, and being audited year after year.
