When taking on something new, it’s common to have someone there to guide you. Whether that be a gym trainer, a sports coach or a teacher in a classroom. It’s always beneficial to have someone there who can direct you in the way you want to go.
The same logic applies to ISO27001; having an expert there to guide you through the process will help you bring your ISO27001 ISMS to life. However, if complications arise when it comes to bringing in an expert i.e. budget restrictions or you want to tackle ISO 27001 alone– then there are alternative options.
Once quoted as “it’s like having a $300/hr consultant at your elbow” – the Nine Steps to Success – An ISO 27001(2013) Implementation Overview by Alan Calder, is the perfect option for those who are looking at ISO 27001 but aren’t ready to bring in the experts yet.
Now in its second edition, this book outlines the nine essential steps to implementing an effective ISO27001:2013 certified ISMS.
