Why use software for ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 requires every employee in the business to play their role in managing information security. Implementers of the Standard need to coordinate many moving parts and ensure Privacy by Design throughout all business processes.

Many businesses use Qualsys’s software to manage ISO 27001. Qualsys provides information security management system software for:

  • A central, robust and secure framework for identifying risk, managing processes, and assigning roles and responsibilities
  • Better data for stronger decision making
  • Instant reports and security information from across the business.

Plus, our best practice implementation service ensures your system is set up in a way that will deliver long-term cost savings.

Support in complying fully with the information security standard.

Manage risk

A crucial requirement of ISO 27001 accreditation is creating documents that define your scope, context and approach. Our software helps you share those compulsory documents with the relevant people and teams.

Avoid unnecessary risk

Disseminating information too widely can expose your company to unnecessary risk. With our software, you can lock down your data by limiting access privileges. Use electronic signatures to make sure your employees have read and understood your latest operating procedures.

Highly secure access control

Your access control policy demonstrates how you mitigate risk by managing what assets you make available - and how. Use our software to deploy a proper access control policy.

Configure the system for detailed risk assessments

Risk assessment is a complex part of ISO 27001 implementation. Our software lets you use workflows to manage how you treat identified risks, and lets you view real-time risk assessment reports in the dashboard.

Link audits and standards to demonstrate compliance

Our software can be configured for both systematic and closed-loop auditing. You can associate your audits with relevant regulations and standards, and use the system to store all the documents your auditors will need to see.

Set policies for how suppliers and third parties access your data

Suppliers, partners, customers – they may all have access to sensitive data about your company. So you'll need a policy that dictates how you work with these third parties. Use our supplier management software to track and manage your supplier relationship.
