ISO 27001 Compliance: Esoft's success journey to

Esoft Success: Our Journey to ISO 27001 Compliance

In the pursuit of information security excellence, Esoft has successfully achieved a great milestone by attaining ISO 27001 compliance. With cybercrime on the rise and new challenges emerging daily, it’s essential for us to be highly risk-aware and have strategy to keep reinforcing safety and sustainable business environment. With ISO 27001 certification, we have taken steps to show our commitment to data security and be actively ready for constantly emerging threats. Your privacy is what matters most to us, and we are beyond happy to share with you our remarkable stages of the journey.

At the beginning of our journey, we recognized the need of evaluating potential risks and conducting gap analysis. This was to comprehensively understand Esoft’s information security landscape and allow us to have the right approach to the implementation process. By utilizing the best business practices and incorporating proven methodologies, our risk assessment & subsequent security controls were ensured to meet the ISO 27001 standards. In particular, with the dedicated support from the ISO Committee, this evaluation thoroughly revealed areas that needed enhancement and refinement. It was never an easy task, but laid the foundation for Esoft to further strengthen our overall security posture.

2. ISO 27001 Compliance – Design and Implement Policies and Controls

Although the baseline for security was carefully considered, our goal is still far from accomplishment. The next step was to establish a robust Information Security Management System (ISMS). Our commitment to information security manifested in the creation of a suite of policies. These policies not only aligned seamlessly with ISO 27001 standards but also resonated with our organizational values. Each policy was carefully designed to reinforce security best practices, and became the guiding principles shaping our security culture. The selected controls were then implemented, crafting a framework that addressed identified risks.

3. ISO 27001 Compliance Employee Training

Recognizing that employees are a crucial part in information security initiatives, it was also our priority to raise awareness and make information security a shared responsibility via internal training and communication. E-learning became a cornerstone of our training strategy. We conducted e-learning training sessions to enhance their knowledge and all of our staff successfully passed the test as expected. Besides, posters and banners about data security are all over the workplace, making sure that the awareness of each individual is always at the highest.

    In preparation for the ISO certification audit, our focus shifted to documenting and collecting evidence. Every policy, control, and training initiative was meticulously cataloged, serving as a comprehensive body of evidence that mirrored our commitment to information security.
  • Completion of ISO 27001 Certification Audit:
    The actual ISO certification audit was a meticulous examination, where external auditors review and make sure our documented evidence and policies are in place. Eventually, we successfully completed the final stage and marked a significant milestone with ISO 27001 certification.
