ISO certification in Qatar plays a very major role in bringing the organisation into a stable economic condition. Integrated management system implementation in any organisation will help them to achieve the best implementation of many standards within a span of lesser time with less amount of investment. ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 standard will help the organisation to have a better management system. Since any business is a living thing, changing and evolving because of internal and external influences, it is necessary that the Information Security Management System also be capable of adjusting itself (e.g., objectives and procedures) to follow business changes and remain relevant and useful. The ISO 27001:2013 standard ensures this condition is achieved by adopting a “Plan-Do-Check-Act” cycle (PDCA) in its framework, which can be described as follows: Plan: the definition of policies, objectives, targets, controls, processes, and procedures, as well as performing the risk management, which support the delivery of information security aligned with the organization’s core business. Do: the implementation and operation of the planned processes. Check: the monitoring, measuring, evaluation, and review of results against the information security policy and objectives, so corrective and/or improvement actions can be determined and authorized. Act: the performing of authorized actions to ensure the information security delivers its results and can be improved.
This clause seeks to cover the “preventive action” stated in the old ISO 27001:2005. The organization must plan actions to handle risks and opportunities relevant to the context of the organization and the needs and expectations of interested parties as a way to ensure that the ISMS can achieve its intended outcomes and results, prevent or mitigate undesired consequences, and continually improve. These actions must consider their integration with ISMS activities, as well as how effectiveness should be evaluated.
The organization must define and apply an information security risk treatment process to select proper risk treatment options and controls. The selected controls must consider, but not be limited to, controls described in Annex A. The main results of the risk treatment process are the statement of applicability, and the risk treatment plan, which must be approved by the risk owners. The information security risk treatment process must be kept as documented information.
ISO 9001 was first introduced in 1987 and is the world’s most popular quality improvement standard, with over one million1 certified organisations in 180 countries. The origins of ISO 9001
are embedded in the global defence industry’s need for standards that govern quality assurance, and it is based upon two military standards: the UK’s BS 5750 series of standards, driven by the Ministry of Defence; and the MIL-Q-9858, the US Military manufacturing standard.
The first edition of ISO 9001 introduced three QMS models, with several variants of each QMS making an allowance for the working practices of different industry sectors. The first was concerned with quality assurance in design, development, production, installation and service for manufacturing new products. The second model covered production, installation and service, while the third focused on final inspection and testing. The second edition (ISO 9001:1994) emphasised product assurance using preventive actions, instead of solely checking the final product. Focusing on managing quality by control, rather than assurance, the standard required organisations to comply with documented procedures.
The introduction of ISO 9001:2000 presented a radical change, by placing quality and process management at its core. Focusing on quality management instead of quality control, the standard first analysed the organisation’s requirements before designing processes to deliver them. This third edition also focused on the continuous improvement of processes and the importance of tracking customer satisfaction. In 2008, updates to ISO 9001 clarified the specifications of the 2000 edition, making it more consistent with ISO 14001:2004, the environmental management system standard.
Risk-based approach: Another major modification to ISO 9001 is the new emphasis on risk-based thinking. This helps you to examine the context of your organisation and to choose the most appropriate risk management technique. This systematic approach to risk-based thinking can save significant amounts of management time, and must be embedded within the organisation as a continuously evolving process that optimises knowledge development and preparedness.
