ISO 27001 Stage 1 Audit
An ISO 27001 certification audit happens in multiple stages. For organizations pursuing certification for the first time, the audit process begins with a Stage 1 audit, also referred to as an ISMS design review.
What is ISO 27001 Stage 1 Audit?
The auditor will review documentation associated with the information security management system (ISMS) to ensure policies and procedures are compliant with the requirements listed in clauses 4-10. If the auditor is satisfied with the design review, the certification process progresses to the Stage 2 audit.
