Global ISO27001 certificates growth – no surprise, says IT Governance


ISO27001, the international cyber security standard, has long been regarded as the leading framework for implementing an information security management system (ISMS) that enables organisations to obtain an independent certification to prove their cyber security credentials.
The ISO Survey 2013 published this month reveals a trend of steady growth in information security management (ISO/IEC 27001) certificates. Given the exponential surge in data breaches and cyber attacks, this trend is set to continue according to the ISO27001 experts at IT security firm IT Governance.
Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, says, “The increase of ISO27001 certificates is not surprising. More and more companies have come to realise the benefits of implementing an ISO27001-accredited information security management system, both in terms of improving security and gaining a competitive advantage.”
The figures in the ISO Survey 2013 show that certification to the ISO27001 has grown by 14% globally and by 25% in Europe. The USA has the tenth highest number of ISO27001 certificates globally, combined with growth of 36%, while ISO27001 certificates in the UK were up by 13% on 2012.
ISO27001 certification is often a supply chain requirement and, as such, can help organisations broaden their client base and supply chain network, while supporting business opportunities in international markets where the standard is recognised.
Other ISO27001 benefits include: enhanced reputation, increased stakeholder trust, meeting regulatory and compliance requirements, and improved internal processes.
IT Governance has recently become the first company in the world to launch ‘all-in’ ISO27001 packaged solutions that are accessible online and can be deployed by any company, anywhere in the world, that wishes to implement the ISO27001 standard and prepare for certification.
Each solution is a combination of products and services in a fixed-price, fit-for-use package sure to meet any organisation’s preferences for tackling ISO27001 compliance projects. Each of the four ISO27001 packaged solutions is available at a transparent price that enables every organisation to know exactly what their chosen journey to ISO27001 certification will cost them.
