ISO 27001 defines how to manage information security through a series of information security management.
The ISO 27001 standard is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act methodology that should be continuously implemented in order to minimise risks to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. The phases are as following:
Plan: Serves to plan the basic organisation of information security, set objectives for information security and choose the appropriate security controls.
Do: Implement the planned processes.
Check: Monitor the functioning of the ISMS and measure if the results meet the set objectives.
Act: Take action to continually improve effectiveness on things that were identified as non-compliant in the previous phase.
