27k1 ISMS has been developed by Peter Farrer, an information security and risk management practitioner, based in Cumbria. Peter is a data security and internet network specialist, holding ISO 27001 Lead Auditor / Lead Implementer accreditations.
Having conducted numerous information security risk assessments using conventional, template and excel based systems, Peter recognised that a comprehensive, web-enabled app would resolve the many problems associated with this standardised approach.
Back in early 2018, Peter began to use his software development and coding skills to design 27k1 ISMS. As the app took shape, he asked Tony Wilson of Indelible Data Ltd to check and approve the app's functionality, user friendliness, accuracy and performance. Tony confirmed that the app would make risk assessment easier for information security project managers as well as ISO 27001 auditors.
Since the April 2019 product launch, we have delivered 1:1, online demonstrations to a large number ISO 27001 consultants, many of whom have now joined our reseller group. Their feedback enables us to continuously improve the 27k1 ISMS, with Version 2 being launched in September. The latest version release includes audit controls across a range of system modules, as well as API’s to cloud based Document Management systems.
We continue to develop the system and the web site. Future plans include a reseller forum so that consultants can exchange news and opportunities, web-links to trainers and training courses and expansion of our international operation, since the web site and system is gaining attention from consultants and companies beyond the UK.
Peter's technical prowess and system development plans are matched by the commercial experience of Jeremy Martin, who brings extensive business development expertise to the company. Jeremy's background in the cyber security and IT sectors allows him to focus on current and emerging trends and work with Peter to develop practical, low cost solutions that meet the needs of firms who wish to improve their information security and gain ISO 27001 certification.
