Does ISO 27001 Compliance Require Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing and ISO 27001 vulnerability analysis is an important part of ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) certification. Annex A.12.6 of ISO 27001 standard refers to A.12.6.1 ‘technical vulnerability management’ and A.12.6.2 ‘restrictions on software installations. Objective A.12.6.1 states that ‘information about technical vulnerabilities of information systems being used shall be obtained in a timely fashion, the organisation’s exposure to such technical vulnerabilities evaluated and appropriate measures taken to address the associated risk’.

A pen test is carried out to assesss the new and emerging threats as well as known vulnerabilities found during testing, that may consist of inadequate passwords usage, lack of hardening of network equipment or wireless devices (or wireless and guest networks). The resultant findings are snapshot of an organization’s exposure based on security threats highlighted in the results.

Our constant support and expert advice make it a smoother process for your ISO certification process.

What is an ISO 27001 penetration test?

A technical security assessment is aimed at identifying, exploiting, and remediating cyber security vulnerabilities in a timely fashion. This ISO 27001 security assessment is conducted once the information security management systems scope is identified. 

Our tests are tailored to meet ISO 27001 penetration testing requirements during risk assessment or continual improvement stages. These assessments are conducted by experienced security consultants to consult security measures who have industry-leading certifications and sector-specific experience to communicate in technical and functional languages. 

As part of our ISO 27001 penetration test engagement approach, all deliverables are customised to demonstrate compliance requirements.

The execution phase is followed by the data analysis and reporting phase. Cyphere performs analysis on the testing output and evaluates the risk impact and likelihood of exploitation in realistic scenarios before providing action plans to remediate the identified risks. All our reports address business as well as the technical audience with supporting raw data, including mitigation measures at strategic and tactical levels.
