About ISO 27001 Risk assessment

Why are ISO 27001 Risk Assessments important?

ISO 27001 certification can be a tricky area to navigate as there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution to the safe and secure handling of information.

There are many aspects that determine the scope of an information security management system (ISMS). To achieve ISO 27001, businesses will need to provide solid evidence that any risks that pose a threat to their own ISMS are addressed and effectively managed.

What is an ISO Risk Assessment?

An ISO Risk Assessment determines what risks are relevant to each organisation. While nobody knows your business better than you do, assessing risk in relation to an ISMS, and in relation to ISO 27001 certification, can be challenging as there are many different areas that are examined as part of the audit. These areas include:

Advanced Functionality

Access to information, both digitally and through physical means

Risk Management

Security measures, such as firewalls and encryption


Employee awareness of risk factors and appropriate staff training


Internal procedures and processes


Benefits of an ISO Risk Assessment

At PGI, we ensure that each ISO Risk Assessment that we carry out is tailored to the individual business. This allows us to highlight the specific risks relevant to your business. Through this personalised assessment and comprehensive report, organisations are able to produce the necessary documents required for ISO 27001 certification, including risk treatment plans (RTPs) which demonstrate how risk has been addressed, and statement of applicability (SOA) reports outlining relevant risk factors.
