3 reports needed for an ISO 27001 audit

An ISO 27001 audit can be intimidating, especially if it is the first time that your information security management system (ISMS) has been audited.

Producing accurate, concise and updated reports is an important part of your audit. Some reports are mandatory, whereas others will help you to impress your auditor.

Statement of Applicability (SoA)

The SoA is a crucial, mandatory report for your ISO 27001 audit. It’s also essential for the management and control of an ISMS.

The SoA identifies the controls that are relevant to your organisation and explains why those controls have been selected to treat the identified risks.

This can be a lengthy document as some organisations might identify thousands of risks. However, it is a useful and concise overview of the entire ISMS. Find out more about the SoA >>

Risk treatment plan (RTP)

The RTP is also a mandatory report for your ISO 27001 audit. It provides a summary of the identified risks, the responses that have been designed for each risk, the parties responsible for those risks and the date to apply the risk treatment. Find out more about the RTP >>

Risk assessment report

The risk assessment report provides detailed information about residual risks as determined by the risk assessment. This is a useful document as it provides information about assets that remain moderately vulnerable, which can help your organisation prepare responses and continuity plans based on the likelihood or severity of risks.
