Which resources can you tap into when preparing for an ISO/IEC 27001 certification audit?

The whole process of preparing for an ISO/IEC 27001 certification audit can be a bewildering task, particularly for those new to the world of standards. Common questions arise which you can’t necessarily get an answer for online. There is just so much information out there that contradicts each other.

Some people see gaining certification against a standard as a highly in-depth and complex task, so put it off, or don’t get started at all. Sure, it does take effort, but really, the process is only as complex as you want to make it and there are plenty of tools and experts available to ease this process.

Where can I get help with preparing for an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification audit?

As of yet, there is not a certification scheme for ISO/IEC 27001:2013. However, BSI will be publishing a range of books to support organisations looking to gain certification against the standard.  You can pre-order these books together  in the ISO/IEC 27001 Certification Bundle. They are written by ISO/IEC 27001 experts that have helped many organisations gain certification against the [2005] standard. The books in this bundle help organisations to prepare for an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification audit. They cover tasks such as ISMS design, implementation, audit and improvement. If you want a low-cost source of information on preparing for an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification audit then pre-order these books today, ahead of the expected November 2013 release.
