Leo CybSec Team

As a cybersecurity company, we understand the importance of maintaining the highest levels of security standards to protect our clients’ data. We know that our clients expect us to have the best practices in place to ensure that their data is safe and secure. This is why we decided to embark on the journey to obtain the ISO 27001 certificate. ISO 27001 is an international standard that provides a framework for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). This certification demonstrates that we have implemented best practices to manage information security risks and protect our clients’ data.

Our Journey

The journey to obtain the ISO 27001 certificate was not an easy one, but it was a rewarding one. We started by conducting an internal audit to assess our current practices and identify areas that needed improvement. We then created an implementation plan that included the following steps:


1. Identify The Scope Of The ISMS

We first needed to identify the scope of our ISMS. We defined the boundaries of the system and the assets that needed to be protected.


2. Conduct A Risk Assessment

We conducted a comprehensive risk assessment to identify and assess the risks associated with our assets. We then developed risk treatment plans to mitigate these risks.


3. Develop Policies And Procedures

We developed a set of policies and procedures to ensure that our information security practices were consistent and aligned with the ISO 27001 standard.


4. Implement Controls

We implemented controls to manage identified risks and protect our assets. These controls included physical security measures, access controls, and technical security measures.



5. Train Employees

We provide constant training to our employees to ensure that they understood their roles and responsibilities in maintaining the security of our assets. We have a partnership with Usecure, a leading Human Risk Management (HRM) provider.


6. Conduct An Internal Audit

We conducted an internal audit to assess the effectiveness of our ISMS and identify areas that needed improvement. Then we applied any remaining actions.



7. Obtain Certification

Finally, we engaged an accredited certification body to conduct an external audit and assess our compliance with the ISO 27001 standard. We have partnered with After successfully passing the audit, we were awarded the ISO 27001 certification.

In addition, the process of obtaining the certification helped us to improve our information security practices and identify areas for improvement.
