4. CIS-STAGE-REVIEW (voluntary preliminary review)
Upon request, CIS will review the usefulness and efficiency of the implemented elements in the course of the project.
5. CIS-SYSTEM-&-RISK-REVIEW (preliminary review)
CIS reviews interpretation of the requirements placed by the standard as well as the documentation. Deficiencies and opportunities for improvement will be laid down in a short report. This preliminary review provides a basis for the certification audit.
The CIS Auditor reviews the managementsystem by making multiple samples on all levels of the organization. The audit report shows opportunities for improvement.
By obtaining the “Certificate Issuance & Right to Use Licence”, you obtain the CIS Certificate, which makes the quality of the ISMS and/or ITSMS visible even to your customers.
The Surveillance Audit, which is conducted once a year, reviews effectiveness of the overall managementsystem as well as continual improvement.
After 3 years, the Certificate, which has expired, can be renewed.

Stage Reviews illustrate the state of an implemented management system
On what level is the implemented management system, and which important aspects can be improved? For companies that are in a certification process acc. to ISO/IEC 27001 or ISO/IEC 20000, a Stage Review is an important milestone on the way. But also in general this powerful tool furnishes excellent benchmarking for the quality of a management system with its policies, processes, performance indicators and measures. As a voluntary preliminary review the CIS Stage Review gives information on the status of a management system and shows strong and weak points as well as opportunities for improvement in detail. For no matter whether there are too few or too many measures, this will be unprofitable. A Stage Review will be conducted by independent CIS Auditors and therefore is fit to enable objective project progress control. In order to make an analysis of the actual state, the specific risks, which depend on the company size and sector, the implemented processes as well as organization measures will be evaluated and compared to the requirements placed by ISO 27001 or ISO 20000. The result will be an audit report, which will assess strong and weak points as well as the concrete opportunities for improvement.
A Stage Review includes the following operating steps:
- Audit planning: guarantees economically efficient handling
- Audit procedure: evaluation of risks and strong or weak points within the company
- Audit report: detailed report with a strength/weakness analysis and opportunities for improvement
