ISO/IEC 27xxx Certification Services

Our ISO/IEC 27xxx certification services cover Security and Privacy that enable our customers to have SOC 2 and ISO/IEC 27001:2013 or ISO/IEC 27701:2019 (PIMS) or other 27xxx audits under one roof, thus saving considerable costs and efforts.

As the SOC 2 broadly covers many of the ISO/IEC 27001 certification requirements, it makes sense for organizations to combine the audits by us under one brand. The AICPASOC 2 Type 2 engagements require continuous monitoring for evaluating the operative effectiveness of the controls, in parallel we are also able to evaluate most of the ISO/IEC 27xxx controls pertaining to our customers' environment.

Thus, this is a win-win situation for our customers as they can get the ISO/IEC certifications along with the SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance reports under one roof (brand) and perhaps conducted together to save considerable time and effort.


ISO/IEC 27001,27011,27017,27018,27019,27701- Information Security Management System (ISMS)


Increasing data breaches are a concern for most organizations. Technologies are constantly changing and thus we need to keep pace with the environment and adapt a process of change to enable the use of these new technologies in a safe manner. Implementing an ISMS for certification under ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is one way to ensure that your organization follow a process for its information systems to provide an assurance to its vendors and third-parties that the systems and data are appropriately protected.

The ISO 27xxx certificate provides evidence of an audit of Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (CIA) of an organization that follows an internationally recognized process to manage their customer's information or data. The ISO/IEC 27017 demonstrates Cloud Service Providers (CSP’s) controls overs its cloud services. The ISO/IEC 27018 is used for Personal Data (PII) data in the cloud. ISO 27001 combined with Cloud CSA CCM4 can enable an organization to achieve the CSA STAR Level 2 Compliance.

Why ISO/IEC 27xxx

  1. Assures your customers about your organization's standards in managing the information or data.
  2. The organization follows an established ISO/IEC process that could reduce the likelihood of a potential security breach.
  3. Third-Parties or Vendors accept ISO/IEC 27001 Certificate as a vendor due diligence process.
  4. The ISO/IEC 27001 extentions like ISO/IEC 27017 or ISO/IEC 27018 provides assurance for CSP’s and the ISO/IEC 27701 provides for Privacy Assurance.
  5. The CSA CCM4 with ISO 27001 provides assurance for CSP’s and achieve the CSA STAR Level 2 Compliance.
