A note from the author
I am Stuart Barker the ISO 27001 Ninja and as young and handsome as I no doubt look I have been doing information security for over 20 years. And look, I am still smiling.
Top get things done and manage the ISMS you are going to want to know who is ultimately accountable for a control and who does the work day to day. There are many scenarios where this information is important ranging from who to speak to for internal and external audits, who will maintain operational control of the process, who will update documents and more. The ISO 27001 RASCI Table is a tool that allows you to record who owns an Annex A / ISO 27002 control. It records who is accountable for it and who is responsible for it. Think of it like who would get sacked if the control failed and who is the person that does the actual work day to day. They may be the same person or may not. This allows you to plan your communications, your internal audits, your documentation maintenance and more.

The ISO 27001 RASCI Matrix template is the document that allows you to manage the implementation of the information security management system by assigning people to roles and responsibilities.
The purpose of the risk register template is to fast track your ISO 27001 implementation. It takes the requirements of the standard and allows you to assign people to those requirements. This in turn helps you manage the information security system and know who to talk to for internal audits.
The cost of the ISO 27001 Risk Register template is £9.97. The price can vary depending on currency exchange rates and the running of promotions and offers.
You document the ISO 27001 roles and responsibilities using the ISO 27001 Roles and Responsibilities Template and the ISO 287001 RASCI Matrix Template.
The benefits of using an ISO 27001 RASCI matrix include:
Increased clarity and transparency: The matrix provides a clear and concise overview of roles and responsibilities, which can help to reduce confusion and misunderstandings.
Improved accountability: The matrix makes it clear who is responsible for each task, which can help to improve accountability and ensure that tasks are completed on time and to the required standard.
Enhanced efficiency: The matrix can help to streamline communication and decision-making by ensuring that everyone involved in the ISMS knows who to contact for information or assistance.
Reduced risk: The matrix can help to reduce risk by ensuring that all potential risks are identified and that appropriate controls are in place to mitigate those risks.
The four roles in the RACI matrix are:
R esponsible: The person who is ultimately responsible for the completion of a task.
A ccountable: The person who is ultimately accountable for the success or failure of a task.
C onsulted: The person who is consulted for input on a task, but does not have any direct responsibility for its completion.
I nformed: The person who is kept informed of the progress of a task, but does not have any direct involvement in its completion.
The additional role in the RASCI matrix is:
S upport: The person who provides support to the person who is responsible for a task. This support can take many forms, such as providing resources, expertise, or guidance.
Internal audits can be used to verify that controls are in place and that they are being implemented and maintained effectively.
The ISO 27001 RASCI Matrix template should be updated on a regular basis to reflect changes in the organisations information security environment and changes in personnel.
A limitation of the ISO 27001 RASCI matrix is that it can be difficult to keep the matrix up-to-date. As the Information Security Management System evolves, the roles and responsibilities of team members may also change. It is important to regularly review the matrix and make updates as needed.
Another limitation of the ISO 27001 RASCI matrix is that it can be difficult to ensure that everyone involved in the ISMS understands their roles and responsibilities. It is important to communicate the matrix to all team members and to provide training on the matrix as needed.
The limitations of an ISO 27001 RASCI matrix can be mitigated by taking the following steps:
Keep the matrix up-to-date. As the ISMS evolves, the roles and responsibilities of team members may also change. It is important to regularly review the matrix and make updates as needed.
Communicate the matrix to all team members. It is important to ensure that everyone involved in the ISMS understands their roles and responsibilities. This can be done by providing training on the matrix and by making the matrix available to all team members.
Use the matrix in conjunction with other security controls. The ISO 27001 RASCI matrix is not a silver bullet. It is a tool that can be used to improve the effectiveness of an ISMS, but it is not a guarantee of security. It is important to use the matrix in conjunction with other security controls to protect an organization’s information assets.
Be flexible. The ISO 27001 RASCI matrix is a tool, not a rigid set of rules. It is important to be flexible in how the matrix is used and to adapt it to the specific needs of the organization.
Make the matrix user-friendly. The ISO 27001 RASCI matrix should be easy to use and understand. This can be done by using clear language and by avoiding jargon.
By following these steps, organisations can mitigate the limitations of the ISO 27001 RASCI matrix and use it to improve the effectiveness of their ISMS
