ISO Certification Services
Our ISO certification services cover Security and Privacy that enable our customers to have SOC 2 and ISMS or PIMS audits under one roof, thus saving considerable costs and efforts.
As the SOC 2 broadly covers many of the ISO 27001 certification requirements, it makes sense for organizations to combine the audits managed by us. 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 ISMS (ISO 27001) controls or PIMS (ISO 27701) controls pertaining to our customers' environment.
Thus, this is a win-win situation for our customers as they can get the ISO certifications along with the SOC 2 Type 2 Compliance reports under one roof and perhaps conducted together to save time and effort.
ISO/IEC 27001,27017 & 27018- 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 standard such as ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is one way to ensure that those organizations 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 ISMS provides an audit Certificate of Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (CIA) of the cybersecurity posture of an organization that follows an internationally recognized process to manage their customer's information. The ISO 27017 demonstrates Cloud Service Providers (CSP’s) controls overs its cloud services. The ISO 27018 is used for Personal Data (PII) data in the cloud.
- Assures your customers about your organization's standards in managing the data.
- The organization follows an established ISO process that could reduce the likelihood of a potential security breach.
- Third-Parties or Vendors accept ISO 27001 (ISMS) Certificate as a vendor due diligence process.
- The add on such as ISO 27017 or ISO 27018 provides assurance for CSP’s.

ISO 27701- Privacy Information Management System (PIMS)
In August 2019, the ISO announced a new certification ISO/IEC 27701:2019 also known as the Privacy Information Management System or PIMS. Earlier the ISO 27701 was known as ISO 27552.
It is an add on certification on top of the ISMS or the ISO/IEC 27001.
- Assures that the data subjects of customers are managed responsibly.
