If you have been following our ISO Blog Series you would have seen that in Part 4 we talked about the documentation stage we took during lockdown. At this stage of the game, we had a lot of documents that had been reviewed by our ISSG. We had also received valuable feedback from the Axenic team members. The ISMS documents we had after stage four were now ready to inform our first set of final documents.
If you have been reading our blog series you will be following our journey to becoming ISO 27001 certified, which we achieved in February this year! In Part 3 we discussed how we utilised lockdown to get our advantage with some extra time on our hands. At that stage in our ISO journey, our ISMS was running with a high level of governance, however, it was not yet ready to get us ISO certified. There were still some pieces we needed to complete to get us over the line to achieve ISO 27001 certification. Let’s take a close look at the next stage we took on our journey to become ISO certified – one which involved a fair bit of documenting!
If you have been following our ISO 27001 blog series you will know that Axenic is now officially ISO 27001 certified! The team is extremely excited about this accomplishment, however, the journey to becoming certified has not been easy. We are going to continue talking you through our journey to certification and Part 3 discusses our lockdown experiences and how we used this to our advantage.
At the end of 2019, Axenic’s leadership team agreed to implement our strategy to achieve ISO 27001 certification. This took the form of setting aside resources to spend time on designing and implementing our Information Security Management System (ISMS). In this blog series, we will be taking you through Axenic’s journey to certification – to catch up on Part One of the series click here. In our second blog of the Axenic ISO 27001 certification journey, we take a look at the planning stage and what was involved in this important step.
