Is ISO 27001 feasible for start-ups, scale-ups and SME?
In short, yes! ISO 27001 describes a management system which makes sure information security is top of mind. ISO 27001 can work for all kinds of organizations, big or small. It even makes sense to start with this as early as possible, as it is always more difficult to make changes to an existing organization, with established procedures.
It is true that smaller organizations, such as start-ups, scale-ups, small or medium sized enterprises, often have a more difficult time implementing ISO 27001. The ISO documentation leaves much room for interpretation, the purchased template kit is too generic and there is little to no budget to hire a consultant.
This is where we come in.
Instant 27001 is a ready-to-run ISMS, with all documents required by the standard. All content is written with the same small IT organization in mind. All you need to do is read the requirements and adjust the provided documentation to make sure it makes sense to your organization.
You can do all that at your own pace, getting your organization ready for certification one step at a time.
After implementation, you can even decide to postpone certification to a later date, giving your organization time to adjust to new ways of working. Even without a certificate, ISO 27001 has proven to be useful to many organizations.
