Nine Steps to Success: An ISO 27001 Implementation Overview, Second Edition

Starting on your ISO27001 journey? Take your first step with Nine Steps

“This is a rare book in the Information security arena, which manages to deliver an effective message in less than 100 pages … The book does not pretend to give a list of technical controls that can give perfect security for any business – security only comes through the identification and management of the right controls for each business. However, if you are looking for guidance in managing the securing of your business, then this is recommended.”

Richard D Smith, CEng CISSP CISM

Completely up to date with ISO27001:2013, this is the new edition of the original no-nonsense guide to successful ISO27001 certification. Ideal for anyone tackling ISO27001 for the first time, Nine Steps to Success outlines the nine essential steps to an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS) implementation; nine critical steps that mean the difference between project success and abject failure.
