Preparing for the big change – are you ISO 27001:2013 ready?

ISO 27001:2013 was released six months ago and will supersede ISO 27001:2005 by 1st October 2015.

Next October may seem like a long way away, but in ISMS terms, it’s really not. Organisations currently certified to ISO 27001:2005 have less than 18 months to:

  1. Update their knowledge of the new standard
  2. Amend their ISMS documentation so it’s in line with ISO 27001:2013
  3. Implement the new policies and procedures
  4. Arrange for certification with an accredited certification body

If you’re currently in this sticky transition period, then IT Governance is at hand to help you get up to speed on the updates and implement them.

Taking place this Thursday, the ISO 27001:2013 Certified ISMS Transition Live Online Training Course provides an essential knowledge update and practical advice for ISMS implementers and auditors. Run live by ISO 27001 expert Alan Calder, this online course is perfect for those based outside the UK who cannot attend our classroom-based training courses.

For those who would like to assess what they need to do in order to successfully transition from 2005 to 2013, use the Gap Analysis Tool. This quickly and clearly identifies the controls and control areas which do not conform to the requirements of ISO 27001:2013 and therefore helps organisations prioritise their work areas so that they can attack the transition with a detailed and structured approach.

And finally, for those that need assistance in creating and managing ISO 27001:2013-compliant documentation, the ISO 27001:2013 ISMS Standalone Documentation Toolkit provides a comprehensive set of pre-written ISMS documents. Fully customisable and editable, these templates will save you time, budget and resources.
