Redundancy - Is it mandatory ? Dec 20 2007 07:17AM

Hi,

We are in the process of getting ready for ISO 27001.

We have an Internet link . Lot of our business has dependency on
Internet link being up.

The ISO consultant helping us has been insisting that I buy a spare
router and get a backup Internet link. That obviously means I need to
put some money.

I am not convinced about this need because

- Last 4 years the router has not failed. I am convinced about its resilience

- Internet link service provider has been meeting his SLAs consistently

My question is

- Is the ISO 27001 auditor going to question my above conviction. Is
redundancy a mandatory requirement or can I document that as an
acceptable risk[ or something else]?
