ISO 27001 is the international standard that defines the requirements for information security management systems (ISMS). It provides organisations with a framework for managing information security risks.
The standard is widely recognised as a global benchmark of information security best practice and in October 2022 it was updated to reflect the changing threat landscape. As an accredited certification body, LRQA can now offer UKAS-accredited ISO 27001:2022 certification and will support existing clients in their transition to the new version of the standard, as well as organisations seeking initial certification.
Organisations with existing ISO 27001:2013 certificates have until 31 October 2025 to transition, and from 01 May 2024, all new approvals and renewals must be to the new version of the standard.
Shirish Bapat, Technical Product Manager (Information Security), commented, "We are delighted to have secured ISO 27001:2022 accreditation from UKAS – it recognises the competence and expertise of our auditors and highlights the effectiveness of our transition process. This gives our clients confidence that they've selected the right assurance partner to support their journey to ISO 27001:2022 certification, helping them to mitigate risk and seize opportunities for continual improvement.”
