DISC has implemented ISO 27001 for several organizations to achieve certification which includes but not limited to fortune 500 organization.
DISC performs a security review (ISO 27k gap assessment) to identify and analyze risks and weaknesses in the security posture of your organization and due diligence is achieved by virtue of ISO compliance. A gap assessment is performed utilizing international standard ISO 27002 2013 (Code of Practice), ISO 27001 2013 (ISMS Specification) and company security policy, the purpose of the gap assessment is to evaluate the information security posture of your organization. The level of compliance will indicate how close your organization is to meeting the key objectives for each 114 controls defined within 14 security control clauses collectively containing a total of 35 main security categories and four introductory clauses including introduction, scope, normative references and terms & definitions.
There are 114 controls in Annex A, covering the breadth of information security management, including such areas as
ISO 27001 helps you identify and manage risks
An ISMS is based on the outcomes of a risk assessment, which means the business needs to produce a set of controls based on the identified risks in order to minimise those risks. The risk assessment is conducted across the organization. It includes all the possible risks that the information can be exposed to, balanced against the likelihood of these risks materialising and the potential impact of such risks. Once the risk assessment has been conducted, the company needs to decide how it will manage and mitigate those risks. The business then needs to make a decision about how to decrease the risks based on allocated resources and budget.

It is important to not only assess the control for completeness (all relevant areas are addressed) and comprehensiveness (each individual area is covered completely), but also this balanced framework serves as the basis for both measuring an organization's effectiveness in addressing risk and structuring an organization's overall security program. Because ISO 27002 requirements are largely a superset of other major regulations, achieving ISO 27002 compliance positions most organizations to be well on their way to meeting the requirements of PCI, SOX, HIPAA and GLBA.
To achieve ISO compliance, thorough assessment utilizing all 133 controls will provide mitigating solution guidelines for gaps. Depending on your needs, size of your organization, availability of key resources and information the final report can be produced within couple of weeks. Also depending on your requirement DISC may provide implementation guidance and metrics for 39 control categories. To give your business an edge, contact us if you would like to compare your security practices with international standard.
The result of the assessment will not only establish and maintain security policy, but also validate policy's completeness, design new controls and provide a road map to mitigate risks and to achieve certification. An assessment of risks will determine what issues need to be addressed and provide a guideline to meet security regulations and a road map to build a world class ISMS (Information Security Management System). Controls are not only technological solutions but also cover people and organizational processes.

CMMI to ISO 27002
|Rating||CMMI level||ISO 27002 level|
|0||Non existent||Complete lack of recognizable control|
|1||Initial||There is an evidence that security issue exist and needs to be addressed, however no control exist to tackle the issue|
|2||Repeatable||Security control is still in development with limited documentation|
|3||Defined||Security control has been documented and communicated through training, but it is left to individual to follow control|
|4||Managed||It is possible to monitor and measure security control compliance but management of the control is not fully automated|
|5||Optimized||Security control has been refined to a level of ISO code of practice, based on result of continuous improvement|
