ISO 27001 Certification
Ensure your cybersecurity program is designed to keep you safe.
ISO 27001 specifies requirements for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) and provides practical guidance for information security management. The ISO 27001 security standards comprise what are arguably the most widely accepted and broadly applicable framework for establishing, managing, and assessing an organization’s information security management system.
Being ISO 27001 certified demonstrates to your clients that you are taking a proactive approach to mitigating cybersecurity risk. ISO 27001 certification is invaluable for monitoring and maintaining an organization’s ISMS. Plus, this certification sends a message to potential clients and business partners that they can be confident in your data security practices, giving you an edge over competitors lacking an ISO 27001 certification.
ISO 27001 Certification Audit Process
There are two audit stages that must be completed in order to achieve ISO 27001 certification.
Stage 1 Audit
Stage 1 Audit is sometimes called the “documentation review” or “pre-assessment” where our auditors perform a high-level review of your ISMS and determine if your policies and procedures are in place to conduct an audit. This stage is typically completed on-site in order to establish that the organization has met the minimum requirements of the ISO 27001 standard and is prepared for a certification audit. Our auditors will also highlight any areas of nonconformity and point out where potential improvements can be made.
Stage 2 Audit
During a Stage 2 Audit, our auditors will conduct a thorough assessment to determine if your organization’s ISMS is within compliance of the ISO 27001 standard. They do this by seeking evidence of the organization’s current policies and procedures. If any nonconformities are found, our auditors will provide feedback on how your organization can gain compliance. Upon successful completion, we are able to issue a report validating ISO certification.

360 Advanced showed great professionalism as it relates to getting acquainted with a very unique industry like ours, the school transportation industry. We know that’s not easy and we appreciate all the extra effort that was put into learning about us and our industry. We’re extremely pleased with the service.
The one thing that sticks out more than anything else is the audit readiness they provide before the audit process starts. I appreciated the coaching and mentoring we received so we were well prepared for the audit. 360 Advanced always answer their phones, whether for quick issues or questions. And, they are not nickel and diming us – we paid one fee and they are still assisting us post audit.

I think the strength of SSA16 accreditation compliance has been such an advantage for us, allowing us to improve our processes, provide oversight and have our customers see the difference. The SOC examination has exceeded our wildest dreams. We are communicating this as part of our sales process and now it’s a requirement in nearly all the RFPs. We’ve won every single bid we submitted on since we received compliance. We think that is the key differentiator.
