The GreyCastle Security Proven Process Package: Includes all the documents and tools that are needed to execute an efficient, effective and sustainable Information Security Program. Our documentation includes policies, standards, service plans and processes and it already meets the spirit and intent of ISO 27001 requirements and also meets the spirit and intent of just about any security compliance requirements. ISMS and ISO 27001 is a process-approach, and the fact of the matter is that mandatory requirements can never be met by any "software".

ISO 27001 Gap Assessment + Implementation Blueprint: Considering ISO 27001? Our ISO 27001 Gap Assessment + Implementation Blueprint will provide clarity on the level of effort that is needed to get you from where you are today to ISO 27001 certification. With a multitude of deliverables, you'll be able to leverage actionable intelligence to make an informed decision moving forward.

Information Asset Management: Our asset inventory building process creates a systematic and deliberate approach that illuminates where your data resides and what your information assets are. Using an asset-based, risk management approach, you can be sure your security program addresses compliance requirements from multiple chosen relevant frameworks, while also prioritizing real security threats to your assets and your business. Take advantage of our expertise in this space and build your system (i.e. program) right the first time.

ISO 27001 Facilitated Risk Assessment: Our ISO 27001 Facilitated Risk Assessment is a major component of the Plan Phase of our Proven Process. We leverage the high-quality information asset inventory created in the above step, and then utilize a proven risk management framework and the tools from our Proven Process Package to provide you with clarity on your ISMS security risk levels, meeting the risk assessment requirements of ISO 27001 and answering the important "W" questions for informed choice decisions and actionable intelligence.

ISO 27001 Risk Treatment and Control Implementation: With this service we can provide you with the leadership and guidance to see that your risk levels are lowered, mitigating controls are in place, and continuous improvement is embedded into your ISMS. We also provide the Knowledge Transfer Advantage so that training is baked in throughout the implementation process.

ISO 27001 Internal Audit: Many of our clients don’t have an IRCA or RAB accredited ISO 27001 auditor on staff and the ISO 27001 Internal Audit is a hard requirement of ISO 27001 certification. To meet this requirement, we come on site and perform the ISO 27001 Internal Audit for your organization, positioning you for success and ISO 27001 certification. It is important to note that our Internal Auditors are not involved with ANY implementation efforts and remain independent and objective.

ISO 27001 Audit Ombudsman: An ISO 27001 Certification Audit can be intimidating and challenging. To combat these challenges, our subject matter experts will participate in the ISO 27001 Certification Audit as a representative for your organization. We will ensure the Audit is performed in a fair and logical manner and make sure all the auditors’ questions are addressed.

ISMS Effectiveness Assessment: If you have an established ISMS and want to ensure continuous improvement, you can utilize our subject matter expertise to identify areas of weakness and opportunities. These services ensure that the ISMS is serving the business and bringing value to your organization.

ISO 27001 Control Maturity and Effectiveness Assessment: Once mitigating controls are put in place, according to ISO 27001, you must monitor the Maturity and Effectiveness of the controls. Our subject matter experts will perform a detailed analysis on the maturity and effectiveness of each control, ensuring clarity and providing direction on how to continuously improve your ISMS.

ISMS Continual Improvement: This is a wonderful solution for our clients that don't necessarily want to onboard a full-time employee to manage and continually improve your ISMS.
