The world’s first ISO27001:2013 books are now available


IT Governance, the global leader in ISO 27001 expertise, has announced that the world’s first ISO/IEC 27001:2013 books are now available from its online store. Published by IT Governance Publishing (ITGP), the world's leading IT-GRC publisher, the three new titles are:
  They have been written to aid early adopters in understanding and grasping the new and revised requirements.
ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is substantially different to its predecessor:
  • It lends itself more easily to integration with other management system standards.
  • It doesn’t dictate which method of continual improvement should be used.
  • Terminology in the Standard has been updated and there is an increased focus on setting objectives and assessing performance and metrics.
  • The risk assessment requirements in the Standard are less prescriptive and are aligned with ISO31000 - the International Standard for risk management.
Hannah Perrett, Head of Publishing at ITGP explains, “ITGP are always first to market with unique, practical and up-to-date publications and the subject of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is no exception. There will inevitably be a transition period between the two editions of the Standard, but for those organisations that want to be seen as industry leaders, reaping the benefits of being ahead of the curve and using it to their competitive advantage, these publications will provide essential guidance for those embarking on an ISO/IEC 27001:2013 implementation journey.”
