This internship serves to familiarize auditors with the organization and vice versa.

  Phase 2 is a more detailed and formal Audit Compliance Test that independently tests the ISM in accordance with the requirements of ISO / IEC 27001. Auditors seek evidence to confirm that the management system is properly designed and implemented. for example by confirming that a Security Committee or a similar government body meets regularly to monitor the ISMS. Certification auditions are usually conducted by leading ISO / IEC 27001 auditors. Carrying out this step leads to ISMS certification in accordance with ISO / IEC 27001.

The current process includes follow-up reviews or audits to confirm that the organization remains a standard. Certification maintenance requires a periodic review to ensure that the ISMS continues to perform as intended and expected. This should happen at least every year, but (with management's consent) they are held more often, especially as the ISMS develops.
