IT Governance, the leading provider of cyber security and ISO 27001 expertise, is encouraging organisations and individuals involved in the ISO 27001 implementation projects to develop a background understanding with IT Governance’s book of the month, Nine Steps to Success - An ISO 27001 Implementation Overview, Third edition
Nine Steps to Success
outlines the nine simple steps to ISO 27001 certification based on the methodology used by consultants to implement hundreds of ISO 27001-compliant information security management systems (ISMS).
Alan Calder, founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, said: “Having led the implementation of the first information security management system, Nine Steps to Success
was written based on my experiences with a large number of successful ISO 27001 ISMS implementation projects. It aims to help information security teams with their ISO 27001 projects from inception to certification.”
The step-by-step guide
to successful ISO 27001 implementation covers project mandate and initiation, ISMS initiation, project management framework, baseline security criteria, risk management, Standard implementation, measuring, monitoring and reviewing the ISMS, and certification to the Standard.
is designed to help information security professionals gain support from senior management and the board. With the book’s guidance, they will be able to create a management framework, carry out a gap analysis, develop competence and awareness across the organisation, conduct a five-step risk assessment, develop a risk treatment plan, integrate their ISO 27001 ISMS with other standards such as ISO 9001, address any documentation challenges, and learn how to continually improve their ISMS through auditing, testing and conducting management reviews.
Organisations implementing an ISO 27001-compliant ISMS can take advantage of this accessible overview of the Standard to significantly increase their chances of achieving certification.
Nine Steps to Success
was completely revised for the third edition in 2016 and reflects the methodology used by IT Governance’s consultants in successful implementation projects around the world.
