Security Policies for ISO 27001 Security Standard


I have been asked to draft IT security policies for our company in order to acquire the ISO 27001 security standard.

To be honest I don't really know where to start.

Any pointers to online resources or policy templates would be welcome, but ultimately I like to understand what principles should be adopted in  practice.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I figured. I will need to check the links out on Monday when I am back at work.

Thanks so far, I am sure there will be more. :)
One of the big parts of ISO certification is the definition and implementation of audit procedures to insure that there are mechanism in place to enforce policy compliance within processes.

The process need to have a self-checking, self-correcting mechanism.
