"I'm home now. My organization is growing rapidly and I recently joined as the Senior Security Consultant. We maintain ISO/IEC 27001 Certified data and have been externally appraised at SEI CMMI Level 5 and are ISO 9001, ISO/IEC 27001, and ISO/IEC 20000-1 certified. Additionally, we are a SOC compliant environment. We're the leading cybersecurity advisor that helps private and public companies in our state. I'm responsible for information security compliance, gap and risk assessments, SOC reporting, GDPR assessments, ISO 27001 certifications, etc.. I can detect the slightest change in the tone of a voice when I'm conducting a security assessment interview - that makes my day."

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 972 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which ISO IEC 27001 improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 972 standard requirements:

  1. Will SSAE 116 SOC I Type 2, ISO 27001 Certification and voluntary US-EU Safe Harbor Framework qualify in lieu of the SSAE 16 SOC II Type 2, FISMA Level 3, or FedRAMP CSP documentation described?

  2. Has an information security risk assessment process that establishes the criteria for performing information security risk assessments, including risk acceptance criteria been defined?

  3. Do we maintain our own threat catalogue on the corporate intranet to remind employees of the wide range of issues of concern to Information Security and the business?

  4. Are employees required to adhere to the information security policies and procedures, provided with awareness, education and training, and is there a disciplinary process?

  5. Look at those parts of the ISMS which caused you the most grief when designing and implementing it. Are there parts of the ISMS that are selfevidently painful to operate?

  6. Define ISMS scope what businesses, business units, departments and/or systems are going to be covered by your Information Security Management System?

  7. What you audited: did the scope of the audit match that of the ISMS, or was it more limited in scope, in which case are you planning to fill in the gaps later?

  8. Are Human Resources subject to screening, and do they have terms and conditions of employment defining their information security responsibilities?

  9. How do you ensure resources are available for the ISMS, and directing and supporting individuals, including management, who contribute to its effectiveness?

  10. Are networks managed, segregated when necessary, and controlled to protect information systems, and are network services subject to service agreements?

    Honestly - at the extremely low outlay - the capacity to accelerate your journey, increase productivity and be a more informed buyer (when combined with what actual business problems you are trying to solve) I would be extremely hard pressed to not undertake it.

    Every high achiever has probably been criticized as a 'control freak' at some point. However, given the numerous daily distractions entrepreneurs encounter, if you want to do 'deep work' with broad-ranging impact, you have to control your time to make each day a masterpiece.
