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.

An ISO 27001:2022 certificate is a must-have. In some other cases, customers will recognize your dedication to excellence in providing high levels of security protection in your SaaS solutions by being ISO 27001:2022 certified. Whatever the situation, even with the cost of the implementation, ISO 27001 brings many benefits to your business. Benefits for SaaS organization.


  • Fulfillment of Service Levels – The risk management approach of ISO 27001 can help a SaaS provider to decrease the number and impact of most common incidentsthat can decrease the level of service and/or website uptime, and to monitor service performance, increasing the chances that it will be capable of delivering the expected results at all times.
  • Continuity of services – Sometimes incidents prove themselves far more critical to a SaaS provider than it can normally handle, causing a complete disruption of activities, and ISO 27001 can provide business continuity capabilities to ensure that the minimum agreed service levels will be maintained, or will be recovered quickly, and that the return to normal operations will be as quick as possible.
  • Data ownership and control – For customers, just asimportant as having a SaaS provider to protect their information is the understanding that they, as customers, are still in control of their own information. ISO 27001 can provide a basis for establishing access control functionalities that can be used by the customers themselves to decide who can access their information, and thereby provide better assurance about the data integrity.
  • Global compliance – SaaS providers have all the world as potential customers, and ISO 27001 can help them identify laws, regulations, and other information-related legal requirements that must be fulfilled for each country they want to have business in, decreasing risks not only to themselves, but to their customers, too.
  • Proof of excellence on information protection – So, you’ve set your organization, processes, roles, and responsibilities, and you are achieving excellent results by protecting information. You are also aware that potential customers are looking for best-in-class service, and you have to show them that you are worth their investment. Before they get to know you better, with an ISO 27001 certificate you give them a globally recognized guarantee that they can rely on, until you start delivering evidence of your efficiency once they start using your services.

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, SOC2 HIPAA and GLBA.

To achieve ISO compliance, thorough assessment utilizing all 93 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 all 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.
