How to become an ISO 27001 Lead Auditor


ISO /IEC 27001 Lead Auditor is a person who is responsible for guiding the audit to conduct a systemic audit to check the proper implementation of Information security standards. The Main task of the ISO 27001 Lead Auditor is to prepare a 2 stage audit plan, conduct an audit and submit the audit report at the end of the quarter year in case an internal auditor and the same ISO 27001 Lead Auditor can work as an external third party auditor to conduct an ISMS audit in an organization which is in the process of acquiring ISO/IEC 27001 certification. 

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electro-Technical Commission (IEC) published ISO 27001, a global information security standard, in 2005. To keep up with the evolving structure of technology and information security, it was most recently modified in October 2022.

How to become ISO /IEC 27001 Lead Auditor?

The demand for ISO/IEC 27001 Lead Auditor is at a time high and there is a serious labor shortage of information security analysts in the North American region. For instance, according to the Government of Canada Labor Market Information, based on the magnitude of the difference between job seekers and job openings,  the Job of Information system analysts and consultants are expected to face a National-level Labor shortage from 2022 to 2031. In addition, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 32% increase in demand for information security analysts between the years 2022 and 2032, with a median annual pay of $112, 000 (INR 93.19 lakhs) for these analysts in the USA in May 2022, the survey also projects that annually there are around 16,800 new job openings for information security analysts are being posted. 

Since the role of Lead Auditor is primarily crucial for an organization seeking to be ISO 27001 certified, naturally the responsibilities of an ISO /IEC 27001 Lead Auditor are highly complex, and it requires an in-depth understanding of how ISO 27001 standardization works and the relationship of other relevant ISMS certifications including ISO 27701:2019 standards which is an extension of ISO 27001 standard focusing on managing Privacy Information Management System (PIMS).

As mentioned earlier, the implementation of ISO /IEC 27001 is a rigorous time-consuming process and it requires a particular level of expertise in ISO 27001 standards. However a mere understanding of ISO 27001 standards will not be very helpful while conducting an audit, the said auditor who is performing an ISO 27001 Audit requires proper experience in managing an audit and communicating with other multi-disciplinary teams who were vested in the ISMS implementation.
