With this book, you will find out how to:

  • Get management support and keep the board’s attention;

  • Create a management framework and perform a gap analysis, so you can clearly understand the controls you already have in place and identify where you need to focus your efforts;

  • Structure and resource your project – including advice on whether to use consultants or do it yourself, and an examination of the available tools and resources that will make your job easier;

  • Conduct a five-step risk assessment, and create a Statement of Applicability and a risk treatment plan;

  • Integrate your ISO 27001 ISMS with an ISO 9001 QMS and other management systems;

  • Address the documentation challenges you’ll face as you create business policies, procedures, work instructions and records – including viable alternatives to a costly trial-and-error approach;

  • Continually improve your ISMS, including internal auditing and testing, and management review;

This title will give you the guidance you need to understand the Standard’s requirements and ensure your implementation project is a success, which includes six secrets to certification success.

Background

Achieving and maintaining accredited certification to ISO 27001, the international standard that sets out the requirements of an ISMS, can be a complicated undertaking, especially for implementers who are new to the Standard.

The author, Alan Calder, knows ISO 27001 inside out: he is the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, and he led the implementation of the first management system to achieve accredited certification to BS 7799 – the forerunner to ISO 27001 – and has been working with the Standard and its successors ever since.

Hundreds of organisations around the world have achieved accredited certification to ISO 27001 with IT Governance’s guidance – which is distilled in this book.

This is a rare book in the Information security arena, which manages to deliver an effective message in less than 100 pages. It offers much, to many different players in the implementation and review of an Information Security Management System. To the experienced practitioner, it is a good source to review present activities against. For the practitioner new to the management of information security, it gives valuable advice on planning, preparation and implementation. While to the manager whose business is going through an ISMS programme, it explains what is happening and their part in it. If you are looking for a book that gives you a list of technical controls that can give perfect security for any business this is not the book for you. However, if you are looking for guidance in managing the securing of your business, then this is the book for you.
