The go-to manual for ISO 27001 implementation

When you purchase a product which requires assembling, more often than not you’ll be supplied with a manual. This manual will include clear guidance on how to put your new product together, tips on how to maintain it and some troubleshooting advice. So why should that be any different with implementing ISO 27001/ISO 27002?

IT Governance – An International Guide to Data Security and ISO27001/ISO27002 is the manual for implementing an ISO 27001 information security management system. The manual, now in its 5 edition, provides clear and unique guidance for both technical and non-technical managers that are looking to implement an ISMS into their organisation.

When it comes to the cost of implementing ISO 27001, there are organisations that for various reasons prefer to take the do-it-yourself approach as opposed to relying on a consultant. With this fact in mind ISO 27001 experts, Alan Calder and Steve Watkins decided to write this manual, so that even though an organisation doesn’t have a consultant at hand, they’ll be able to refer to the expertise of two consultants in this book.

Feedback suggests that they have managed to achieve exactly that:

‘I purchased this book at the very beginning of our ISO27001 project, spent many evenings reading it in bed, and using information from the book we have now successfully implemented ISO27001 – testament to this is that our organisation achieved registration in April 2011’.
