Internal ISMS and ITSMS Audits

ISMS (Information Security Management System) is a process organizations employ to ensure their client's information assets are under explicit management control.  SMS (Service Management System) is a standard that specifies requirements for a service provider to plan, establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and continually improve their service management system.

Internal audit is mandated in all management system standards.  The internal audit process brings about many benefits to an organization such as identifying gaps to standards, procedures, regulatory and other established requirements.  Audits help raise awareness of management's commitment and the importance of achieving planned objectives that improve organizational culture and opportunities.
