Pentest for ISO 27001 certification

For information security, ISO 27001 is the best-known standard worldwide. ISO standards are universal international requirements that organizations must meet to continuously improve processes and performance. Standards are set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Especially since the rules around data protection have been tightened with the GDPR, it has become even more important for organizations to certify to ISO 27001.

With a pen test (penetration test) for the purpose of your ISO 27001 certification, Cyberant can examine whether your organization is properly secured against cyber attacks.

Quality characteristics of information security

In all organizations, information security is essential. The experience of many companies is that it is difficult to get a handle on the status of their security. By implementing ISO 27001, you bring structure and clarity to your information security. This will ensure that the 3 quality characteristics of information are maintained within your organization:


A key quality characteristic is data availability. Information should always be accessible to authorized persons when needed. For good information availability, timeliness, continuity and robustness are crucial.


By integrity we mean the reliability of information. Reliable information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. Moreover, only an authorized person can make changes to the data.


This ensures that information is available only to authorized individuals and that this data is not leaked. The owner determines who will or will not have access to the information in question. Confidential information includes personal data, trade secrets, patient data and competitively sensitive data.

Why ISO 27001 certification?

With an ISO 27001 certificate, you demonstrate that you meet all the international requirements of good information security. In addition, this reduces the likelihood of cybersecurity incidents and mitigates information security risks. An ISO 27001 certification provides a good basis for effective vulnerability management.

Have Pentest performed for ISO 27001

To qualify for ISO 27001 certification, your organization must be able to demonstrate that the security of your applications, website(s) and other IT systems is in order. Cyberant’s experienced pentesters help you do this by testing your online (and in some cases, your physical) network by simulating cyber attacks. With this, we examine whether your security is actually adequate and whether there are no vulnerabilities that pose a risk.
