mile2 is able to assist with the subsequent implementation stages and the ongoing governance and review activities. 


-ISMS and ISO27001

Implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS) within your organization is a strategic decision.  An effective ISMS will address the key issues when implementing security controls, such as:

  • Determining what information is critical to the business’ operation (i.e. organizational intellectual property, payroll, client and personnel information etc.).
  •  Determining how to protect this business-critical information (i.e. how much security is enough, and how can I be sure when I have enough?).
  •  Determining how much the security measures will cost to implement (is money being wasted on over-protecting information, or was enough money spent to protect the information adequately?).
  •  Determining what protection was obtained for the cost ($), and what value has been added to the organization (and was it worth it?).
  •  Ensuring that the security measures are adequate for the threats of today, tomorrow and into the future (how is this done?).
  •  Assigning responsibility for managing and maintaining the information security measures within organization, and ensuring they have the right skills to do the job.

What are the ISO27001 key benefits?

-ISMS Development and Deployment

mile2 offers a road map of services to assist you in developing and implementing a relevant and sustainable ISMS.  We assist you through a number of key activities, mentoring your internal resources to ensure that the resulting system is one that is practical in your environment. 

These activities are based around the PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act) approach common in the most effective management systems.

An Information Security Management System (ISMS) provides the framework to ensure that you have the necessary measures (controls) in place to appropriately mitigate risks to information assets within your business.

The ISMS operates around four key activities:

  • Risk Assessment – identifying information assets, their associated threats and vulnerabilities and the impact to your business if they are lost, damaged or stolen.
  • Mitigation strategy (Control Selection) and planning – selecting and implementing relevant controls to reduce the identified risks to a level that can be tolerated by your business.
  • Monitoring and Review, Testing and Validation – ensuring the deployed controls are effective.
  • Maintenance and Improvement – ensuring that all the controls continue to remain applicable and effective within your changing business environment.

Implementing an ISMS within your organization is a strategic decision. An effective ISMS will address several issues faced when trying to implement security controls, such as:

  • Determining what information is critical to the business’ operation (i.e. organizational intellectual property, payroll, client and personnel information etc.).
  • Determining how to protect this business-critical information (i.e. how much security is enough, and how can I be sure when I have enough?)
  • Determining how much the security measures will cost to implement (is money being wasted on over-protecting information, or was enough money spent to protect the information adequately?)
  • Determining what protection was obtained for the cost, and what value has been added to the organization and was it worth it?
  • Ensuring that the security measures are adequate for the threats of today, tomorrow and into the future.
  • Assigning responsibility for managing and maintaining the information security measures within organization, and ensuring they have the right skills to do the job.

-ISMS Management

Managing and maintaining the security of an organization’s information is becoming an increasingly complex task.  Organizations have to contend with ever-increasing advancements in technology (which provide greater business efficiencies and benefits) and ever changing and increasing threats to information stored, processed or transmitted by this technology.

An Information Security Management System (ISMS) helps organizations ensure that controls exist to protect the companies' information assets. At the same time they give customers and other stakeholders assurance that their information is secured.  An ISMS provides a systemic way of assessing and continuously improving organizational information security and threats to organizational information. You can choose to have your system certified to ISO 27001, the industry standard for best practice, to ensure your organization has the best ISMS available.

What are the benefits of ISMS?

Implementing an ISMS within your organization is a strategic decision. Common benefits are:

  • Provides a systematic and measurable approach in determining risks to organizational information.
  • Fosters a culture of security awareness and organizational security self-improvement within the organization (this includes technical security and the security and viability of the business as a whole).
  • Articulates links between business processes and associated assets.
  • Address business risks to information assets.

In addition to certification to ISO 27001provides you with further benefits including:

  • Setting you apart from competitors by formally certifying your ISMS – a sign that you practice what you preach within a highly competitive market.
  • Proving to your customers that you are serious about protecting their information assets.
  • Increasing your business opportunities within national and international markets –international business is now asking for core parts of business operations to be certified toISO 27001 before accepting you as a business partner.

-ISMS Reviews and Audits

An ISMS audit is performed in order to ensure that the company continually operates in accordance with the specified policies, procedures and external requirements in meeting company goals and objectives in relation to information security. The audit also aims to ensure that improvements to the ISMS are identified, implemented and suitable to achieve
