ISO 27001

At Access Point, our team is dedicated to ensuring ISO 27001 compliance for organizations of all types and sizes. We offer in-depth expertise in this globally recognized information security management standard, allowing your organization to concentrate on its primary objectives. By entrusting us with your ISO 27001 compliance needs, you can benefit from a cost-effective solution compared to managing an internal compliance team. Our scalable ISO 27001 service is designed to align with your organization's budget and specific requirements, effectively reducing overhead associated with internal compliance resources.

Our Approach

Because the enforcement of ISO 27001 compliance comes from outside your company, this validation approach can enhance trust and credibility with clients, partners, and regulatory bodies, even as it demonstrates a responsible approach to safeguarding sensitive data. Our approach follows three central tenets:


Transparency is at the core of our approach to ISO 27001 compliance at Access Point. We believe in reporting all findings, whether positive or negative, to ensure you have a clear understanding of your compliance status. By providing comprehensive and honest assessments, we empower your informed decision-making on ISO 27001 compliance initiatives. We also provide metrics so that you can broadcast the effectiveness of your compliance program.


The surge in regulatory demands across IT has heightened the industry’s vulnerability to investigations, underscoring the criticality of a robust ISO 27001 compliance program. Effective compliance leadership serves as a key resource to oversee and manage the intricacies of the ISO 27001 compliance program on a daily basis. By providing guidance and implementing best practices, the strong compliance leadership we provide spares your organization from regulatory troubles while ensuring ongoing compliance with ISO 27001 regulations.


We take a collaborative approach to guide your organization towards ISO 27001 compliance, leveraging the collective expertise of various Access Point departments. By working synergistically, we ensure that your systems meet the necessary regulations and standards. Our Compliance team supports other internal departments by staying abreast of changes in regulations, industry standards, and emerging threats, keeping everyone informed and aligned. This allows us to capitalize on each other's strengths to deliver optimal outcomes to our clients.

Program Deliverables

Policy Development & Implementation

Policies are high-level statements of intention that set the expectations for meeting the organizational objectives (e.g. “We will encrypt data at rest, in use and in transit”). Access Point can assess current policies, identify any gaps, and assist with implementing and socializing the new policies to ensure they adhere to the proper regulations.

Awareness & Training

As technology continues to evolve so does the volume and variety of cyber threats and attacks. In addition, with more than 300 million people now working remotely, insider threats can cost companies an average of $7.5 million annually. Access Point can help organizations promote a cybersecurity awareness culture by implementing continuous training and educating staff, contractors, and third parties on the risk they could pose to the company through their daily activities.

Audit Readiness

Achieving audit readiness can be challenging due to the ever-changing landscape of complex cyber and privacy laws and regulatory requirements. Access Point will review your organization’s administrative, technical, and physical controls against security control frameworks to ensure they are compliant with relevant regulatory and legal statutes. Our team will provide clients with detailed reports outlining compliance status and will include recommended actions.

IT General Controls (ITGCs) Assessment

To support IT applications, it is important to have the appropriate controls in place to ensure that applications are working as intended. The areas of focus for ITGCs are Access Control, Change Management, DevOps, and Program Management. Access Point can perform an overall assessment of the management controls in the organization’s environment to determine if and where there are gaps. Our services ensure that systems, processes, and procedures are aligned with the current controls and operate effectively.

An Overview of ISO 27001

ISO 27001 is an international standard for information security management systems (ISMS), published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). It specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an ISMS within the context of an organization. The standard also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization. ISO 27001 is designed to help organizations manage and protect their information assets so that they remain safe and secure.

Adopting ISO 27001 helps organizations to manage the security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details, or information entrusted by third parties. It is applicable to any organization, regardless of its size, type, or nature.
