ISO/IEC 27001 certification (also known as “registration”) is a third-party audit performed by a certification body such as PECB MS who, upon verification that an organization is in compliance with the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001, will issue an ISO/IEC 27001 certificate. This certification is then maintained through regularly scheduled annual surveillance audits by the registrar, with re-certification of the Information Security performed on a tri-annual basis.
