ISE Management Systems Certification

What is ISE about?

ISE comprises the controls from ISO/IEC 27001 which allow various departments of your company to implement essential information security controls with less guidance from management – without jeopardizing the fundamental ideas behind the ISO/IEC 27001 framework.
Implementing the PECB ISE framework and obtaining the certification for your organization are the right steps towards demonstrating that you are serious about practicing information security and that you can address the challenges involved in an efficient way.
The design objectives for this new certification scheme:
  • Easy and fast implementation

  • Certifiable

Benefits of ISE certification to your organization:

  • Reduced implementation efforts through few controls
  • No extra training is necessary for already certified ISO/IEC 27001 implementers and auditors
  • No voided implementation efforts when moving to full blown ISO/IEC 27001
  • Marketing advantage through international recognition of the certificate
  • Very feasible step stone to achieve full ISO/IEC 27001 certification
  • Increases the organization’s credibility
  • Ensures information security of provided products and services

ISE certification (also known as “registration”) is granted by a third-party, such as CFC, upon verifying through an audit that the organization has fulfilled the considered essential clauses. This certification is then maintained through scheduled annual surveillance audits by the registrar, with re-certification of the Information Security performed on a triennial basis.
