To ISO 27001 and beyond. Mapping standards in the cloud

Information security in higher education is complex. Staff and students rely on seamless access to information and there is a proliferation of connected devices and networks to protect. Compliance with the ISO 27001 management standard is the best protocol for reducing risk to both digital and physical assets, yet according to CAUDIT data only 50% of universities are using ISO 27001 controls. Standards like NIST and Australia’s Essential Eight are a great start, but how do we close the gaps and embed GRC into BAU?

Using the platform, this session will look at how developments in software are making it easier than ever to build and maintain a solid infosec posture in the cloud, for newcomers and experts alike. We’ll look at how to get ISO 27001 easily and affordably and, if you’re already certified, we’ll look at how you can easily migrate your existing ISMS so you can manage it with greater ease. We’ll then look at how to knit multiple standards together in the one place – creating an integrated management system - to avoid duplication across standards and frameworks and save you time and budget.

About is a cloud-based governance, risk management and compliance platform and the only management system you need to achieve your information security, data privacy and business continuity goals. Built on a solid ISO 27001 foundation, the flexible software is designed to easily connect and manage other standards, regulations and frameworks on top, maximising posture and control, while reducing duplication and effort. The platform currently accommodates over 35 international, local and industry-specific standards, regulations and frameworks.
