Did you know IT Governance led the world’s first ISO 27001 certification project?

Most of our clients will know that IT Governance is one of the world’s foremost ISO 27001 solution providers, but not many know that two of its directors led the world’s first successful implementation of BS 7799, the forerunner to what is now ISO/IEC 27001.

Since then, these two directors, Alan Calder (IT Governance’s founder and executive chairman) and Steve Watkins (also chair of the ISO/IEC 27001 User Group and an ISMS Technical Assessor for UKAS, the official UK accreditation body) have been active in developing the business into a global enterprise.

Apart from co-writing the hugely popular IT Governance: An International Guide to Data Security and ISO27001/ISO27002, which is also the textbook for the Open University’s post-graduate information security course, Alan and Steve have also written numerous books and guides, and are active in the development of IT Governance’s range of information security toolkits, consultancy services and the risk assessment software vsRisk™.
