When assisting a client in choosing the correct framework to align with, the business case is always considered. it’s not securities abroad concern, and an organisation is looking for a risk informed approach CTRL recommend considering a data risk assessment first to identify and begin closing significant gaps.
If there’s a need to demonstrate secure practices to customers or other third parties, we recommend going through an ISO 27001 gap assessment as it provides impartial assurance of security best practices to outside entities.
Should there be a desire to internally benchmark your organisation at regular intervals ASD’s Essential 8 or NIST’s CSF are recommended as strong controls baselines to mature and develop.
Developing a mature information security management system does take time. Organisations must embed security into multiple IT and business processes, as well as ensure they take a risk-informed approach when it comes to implementation and management of security controls.
Certification timelines are strongly dependent on the type of certifications, the scope of the company, its business context, and the scope of the security management system. Large organisations can take several years to adapt their processes, follow them and audit on an ongoing basis. Smaller organisations can look more on the scale of months depending on their existing maturity and goals.
For all organisations however, security is an ongoing journey, plans should be implemented with goals outlined for the next 6 to 18 months.
