Certify Your Security Program

Sustainable Security Based on a Globally Recognized Standard

Whether you’re looking to create your first infosec program, strengthen an existing one, or achieve certification to meet industry or client standards, taking a proactive approach to information security management with ISO 27001 certification is more than smart business. It is a necessary step for protecting assets, limiting risk, and reducing liability.

Why Choose ISO 27001 Certification?

ISO 27001 certification is an internationally recognized standard for information security management systems. It provides a framework for identifying, managing, and reducing risks to the security of information held by organizations. 

ISO 27001 certification demonstrates the quality of your security program, your commitment to information security, can give you a competitive edge, and can enhance customer confidence in your ability to protect sensitive data.

Getting Started with ISO 27001 Certification

Taking a proactive approach to developing or enhancing an information security program begins with knowing where you are and understanding where you want to be. 

EXTEND helps you identify the organization’s goals and desired security benefits, define the security needs of the business, and implement an effective compliance plan and program.

As you begin your ISO certification journey, consider questions like these to help identify your organization's needs and plan your roadmap.

  • Identify The Security Team

    When your team is aligned, your project is set to be successful. That’s why EXTEND assists in constructing your information security team, clarifying the responsibilities of each team member, and laying the groundwork for robust information protection through top-level leadership involvement, transparency, and knowledge exchange. Our fractional CISO services complement your management team with seasoned security leadership and knowledge at a fraction of the cost of full-time hires.

  • Identify Potential Security Gaps

    Upon defining your objectives, we conduct a thorough security gap analysis. By comparing your existing information security program against standards like ISO 27001, we identify its strengths and vulnerabilities and create a detailed roadmap to achieve your desired security and compliance levels.

  • Assess Information Security Processes and Protocols

    We help you assess definitive and potential security risks and categorize them based on criticality and business impact. This step includes evaluating internal and external threats, vulnerabilities, and risks. An assessment report documents areas where security risks exist, defines detailed steps to resolution, and shows alignment with ISO 27001 requirements.

  • Internal Audit and Performance Check

    To ensure the integrity of your security management process, we conduct an internal audit of your program. This performance check, performed by an external auditor, validates the reliability of your security infrastructure and proves adherence to security processes and protocols. We develop a report that outlines areas of improvement, maps audit results to ISO 27001 requirements, and establishes a transparent action plan to eliminate gaps.

  • Ongoing Management and Incident Response

    EXTEND helps you manage and continuously improve your security program: from monitoring and testing program effectiveness to conducting regular risk assessments and maintaining training records and access control. In the event of a security incident, we support your response, recovery, and remediation actions.
