In order to perform Value-Added ISO 27001 Admin department Audit, the auditor must set out a large canvas with help of the following extremely deep pointers. Only step-by-step, systematic planning of audit Questions followed by extensive audit-trail would help the auditor cover all areas of Information Security assessment. Otherwise, it would be professional Hara-kiri (Japanese term for Ceremonial Suicide).

  1. What engineering based security architecture solutions are considered based on organization’s current requirement, and future ramp-ups, including multitude of interfaces, facilities & utilities add-ons, and plug-ins of outsourced services.
  2. How Physical & Environmental Security processes running like a bloodline across the Organization’ system are contributing to ensure that Customer information at rest, information under processed, and information in transit remain “confidential” in accordance with the information value and information exposure risk value?
  3. How Physical & Environmental Security processes are contributing to ensure to preserve “Integrity” of Customer information at rest, information getting processed, and information in transit?
  4. How Physical & Environmental Security processes are contributing to ensure that information at rest, information getting processed, and information in transit remains “available” to the right person, at the right time, and right place throughout its life cycle?
  5. How the Physical & Environmental Security processes are carried out on the basis of RBT?
  6. What information Security controls are in place triggered due to RBT in Physical & Environmental Security processes?
  7. What PDCA rigors are followed for the deployed “Information Security Controls” life Cycle management in Physical & Environmental Security processes?
  1. Admin department information security audits are investigative audits carried out to confirm the status of compliances.
  2. Value added Admin department information security audit cannot be performed effectively without meticulous planning, and preparation.
  3. There is an important adage that “we never plan to fail, but invariably we fail to plan”. Ignorance is the germinating ground for Overconfidence. An ignorant child trying to catch fire gets burnt.
  4. Admin audit Checklist is an important working document of an auditor. It contains all Admin department performance, and admin compliance questions against which the auditee must demonstrate evidences of compliance.
  5. The auditor needs to keep referring to this working document throughout the audit to ensure that assessment is taking place in a focussed planned manner, and no vital area is missed out in the investigation audit.
  6. Admin audit checklist improves the efficiency of the audit including time management. This checklist serves as an aide-memoire that is equally useful for auditor or auditee,
  7. It is extremely important to prepare and plan for a Admin department security audit. The security checklist to perform admin audit is an essential component of audit planning and preparation. There are numerous niches with dozens and dozens of processes, and sub processes to be covered during the assessment, and time is the biggest constraint for the auditor. The time-pressure viz urgency to cover niche verticals inadvertently or otherwise, makes an auditor to skip processes, sub-processes, critical elements thus resulting into erroneous audit outputs. For example, a fully body health check-up has a defined cycle time, if performed hurriedly, without planning, without preparation, with an urgency to complete the check-up "somehow-anyhow" would definitely produce erroneous results even though factual status of body organs and systems would be otherwise.
  8. It takes plenty of years, and costly lessons learnt to arrive at a decent level of understanding of the InfoSec subject. Therefore, it is highly advantageous to have a well-prepared detailed admin audit checklist. A meticulously prepared comprehensive Professional audit checklist has all the compliance questions to be covered by the auditor seamlessly. An auditor without Admin department security audit Checklist would be like a soldier without fighting equipment.
  1. If a business is worth doing, then it is worth doing it in a secured manner. Hence, there can not be any compromise. Without a Comprehensive professionally drawn Physical and environmental security (admin dept.) checklist by your side, there is the likelihood that compromise may take place. This compromise is extremely costly for Organizations and Professionals.
  2. Admin Department audit is though very logical but requires a systematic detailed investigative approach. For a newbie entity (organization and professional) there are proverbial many a slip between cup and lips in the realm of Physical and environmental security’ thorough understanding let alone ISO 27001 audit.
  3. Even with several years of experience by an entity's (organization and professional) side, admin department assessments (read investigations) go astray due to several reasons including engineered distractions, bias, time constraint, (un)comfortable niches, auditee guided audit (investigation), lack of optimum exposure and experience etc.
  4. For Each vulnerability/Risk at the organization level, site level, department level, process, sub-process level, device & component level, tools/application level, people level, technology platform level, delivered products/services level, it is humanly possible to miss out a large number of unidentified Physical and environmental security vulnerabilities/risk due to various reasons including ignorance, rush, vested disinterest, insider threat, connivance between the various working groups, tendency to promote tools for shear commercial interests rather than a holistic security solution, and so on the list is very long. Comprehensive and detailed admin security Checklist Questions enables "carpet bombing" of all Information Security requirements to detect what "exactly" is the compliance and non-compliance status.
  5. What is the biggest risk for an organization? The biggest vulnerability is the "Gang of unidentified risks", lurking in the dark, ready to pounce when the victim organization least expects it. The risks in this Gang, work sympathetically, and in synergy to inflict maximum damage, including corporate Mortality, huge penalties by the customers/ clients and regulatory bodies, flight away of business, loss of reputation and brand value, loss of Jobs, Bankruptcy, etc. This becomes very much possible without a professionally drawn comprehensive and robust Physical and environmental security Audit Checklist by your side.
  6. Of course, Physical and environmental security Audit becomes a robust, immensely focused, efficient, time saver exercise with sharp Checklist Questions, because a comprehensive professionally drawn checklist is built over a period of time pooled by panel of SMEs having decades of experience. The checklists have significant number of dynamic questions leading to further deep audit investigation trail.
