There can be many reasons for an ISMS-Inspection

Just like a PC that you have been using for years, processes and procedures become established in an ISMS over the years that limit the ISMS in its function and possibly hinder the company.

Or perhaps you have decided to no longer certify a single standard and have not removed it from your integrated management system without leaving a residue.

Or you may have implemented several different management systems (e.g. ISO 9001, ISO 27001) and want to better link them together.

You suspect that complicated or unnecessary processes have been introduced on the grounds of a standard requirement and would like an independent assessment.

While surveillance and re-certification audits tend to be carried out on a random basis, an inspection not only checks the ISMS for conformity with standards, but also whether there are any unnecessary regulations in addition, for example. In addition, problems that have arisen after the introduction of regulations and processes are examined more closely.

What is the process of an ISMS-Inspection?

First, we conduct a gap analysis, addressing the following questions:

  • What does the standard require?
  • How was the requirement implemented?
  • Are there overlaps with other existing management systems?
  • What problems arise during implementation or due to overlap?
  • When and how often do required processes take place?

We then analyze the audit reports of the internal audit and the minutes of the ISMS meetings. Based on our findings, we make recommendations for improving the ISMS and its processes.
