03 May 11. Why is the ISO27001 Internal Auditor important? The ISO/IEC 27001:2005 Information Security standard has become the ‘de-facto’ specification and best practice framework, ensuring that organisations worldwide secure their confidential information assets and maintain their competitive position. The role of an Internal Auditor in an organisation is crucial to continued compliance to ISO27001 and in making sure that the internal information security requirements are maintained.

In addition to ensuring that the ISMS meets the needs of the organisation, the Internal Auditor can also audit 3rd party suppliers and partners to ensure that they have adequate information security controls in place.
