In today’s world, Information is the ultimate asset for organizations of any size and type. As an asset it has value, and that value can be denied to the organization in several ways. Some of the critical properties of Information are Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability. Malicious actors can manipulate information to violate these properties, which can threaten the existence of the organization itself. Hence, information has to be secured. For information to be secure, there is a need to assess the risks to information and protect it through effective controls, since security threats and attacks have increased and improved constantly.

With the advancement of technology, today's information is in an electronic or digital form that is contained, transacted or transmitted though information systems and digital channels. Information systems are fragile and hence vulnerable. Besides, information systems are complex structures with each of its components requiring different approaches to protection, compounding the complexity that requires different skills and competencies.

It is routine news today that some entity or the other has been affected through theft or denied access to organizational information. Hence, Organizations need to create a robust defense against such acts (called as attacks) through proper implementation and management of information security controls and best practices and termed ISMS (Information Security Management System)

Recognizing the importance of information and the manner in which it affects people, every nation in order to protect its citizenry is now regulating and mandating organizations to take effective measures of protection. Therefore, Information security is now one of the prioritized key expectations and requirement of customers, legislators, and other interested parties.

Given the above environment and scenario, there is a need to converge and manage the information, information systems and the overall information infrastructure.

ISMS was recognized and adopted as early as 1970 and has today evolved into ISO: 27001 as a global standard developed by the ISO to meet and simplify the approach to information protection, which is adopted by more than 50,000 organizations across the world. Organizations have found it convenient to adopt ISO:27001 to manage their information and information systems.

Like any other progressive activity, the standard also evolves with technological advancement and enhanced knowledge acquired over a period of time. ISO has published the latest edition in 2022 with a new set of controls and approach.

Audit is one of the pillars in the THREE LINES OF DEFENCE concept and any implementation of the ISMS under ISO:27001 requires an assurance that the requirements of the standard are met. With the new 2022 edition coming into force, the audit methodology has to change to meet the new requirements.

Hence, auditors under the earlier edition and the new entrants to this domain need to acquire the skill and competence on the same.

An ISMS Certified Auditor is a formal and independent recognition of personal competencies and helps to qualify a candidate to conduct ISMS audits with ISO:27001 as the criteria to conduct an internal audit for the organization or for a certification body.
