If you are auditee then it will be useful to understand ISO 27001 Certification Life Cycle, spanning gap assessment before initiating ISO 27001 Information Security journey, followed by milestones of the certification life cycle. Once Implementation of the ISO 27001 has taken place in your organization, then obtain these ISO 27001 Checklists to perform internal audit, and plug the gaps with Root cause analysis and CAPA (corrective actions and preventive actions). Our recommendation is to run the internal audits twice with closure status of the findings. You will find your confidence level has risen to unparalleled new level.
If you are an auditor, whether representing customer to perform supplier audits, or representing a certification body to perform 3rd party audit, these checklists is a must-part of your arsenal to bring tremendous value on table by conducting value added Information Security Audits. It is recommended to go through checklists patiently as many times possible (not less than 4 to 5 times) to find enormous myriad auditing patterns emerging with numerous permutations and combination for audits, audit-probes, and investigations trail. During audits keep referring to these as you proceed with your audit in a department, and moving from one department to another. Always keep it open in minimized mode on your laptop. It is pertinent to mention that your checklists as well as your laptop need to be password protected.
Titular Clauses from 4 to clause 10.2 are the springboard of requirements of Information security Management system framework which is mandatory for organizations to fullfil. These clauses give rise to hundreds upon hundreds of compliance requirements to be fullfilled by the organizations and which the auditors must audit. From the below clauses of 4 to 10.2, the "ultimate chaecklist" captures 1336 compliance requirements which need to be addressed by the auditees as well as auditors.
In order to meet the requirements of Information security Risk assessment and Risk treatment of Clauses 6.1.1, 6.1.2, and 6.1.3, a minimum list of 114 controlls are annexed to the main standard. Since these 114 controls in the annexure are minimum controls and not the maximum controls based on the risk appetite of each unique business model, that is why it is annexed to the main standard. To understand this from real life example, consider main body of any international Master Service Agreement (MSA) alias contract, as the main body from clause 4 to 10.2 of the ISO 27001 standard which is static, undynamic, fixed, permanent. The annexure to the MSA is always dynamic, variable, executable component in support of some clause(s) of the MSA, which in case of the ISO 27001, are the clause No. 6.1.1, 6.1.2, and 6.1.3. To be more precise, the annexure supports clause 6.1.3.
