Recently, Vmoksha Technologies, a pioneer in IT services, undertook the ISO27001:2013 upgradation audit on 17th & 18th August 2015. The auditing starts with an opening meeting, attended by multiple stakeholders. Accompanying these attendees, we also had heads of all departments & few projects, representing themselves as auditees in their respective areas.

On 17th Aug, the auditor reviewed all the findings that were captured during the previous year’s audit and confirmed that everything is addressed thoroughly. He checked the contents of ISMS Manual and verified whether we have covered all the areas that have been mentioned in the ISO27001:2013 guidelines. He suggested the areas, which we need to focus more and advised how to address these gaps. The auditor thoroughly explained the importance of representing a process using matrix and flow charts rather than plain text with points.
