Many companies that have implemented ISO 9001 look towards ISO 27001 implementation without knowing they can actually reduce the implementation time by 30%
Zagreb (PRWEB) November 15, 2011
Most of the companies that have implemented ISO 9001 have no idea they can implement ISO 27001, this increasingly popular information security standard, with much less effort than they initially anticipate. Information Security & Business Continuity Academy is organizing a free webinar ISO 27001 implementation: How to make it easier using ISO 9001 to explain how to achieve this.
The ISO Survey of Certifications published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) shows that ISO 9001 is the most popular management standard worldwide with more than 1 million certified companies, and that ISO 27001 is one of the standards with the highest growth in number of certified companies – about 20% annually. ISO 27001 is the most popular with IT industry, financial institutions, telecoms, healthcare and government agencies, but it is also implemented across various other sectors.
"Many companies that have implemented ISO 9001 look towards ISO 27001 implementation without knowing they can actually reduce the implementation time by 30%," says Dejan Kosutic, the presenter of the webinar. He also added that "these free webinars have proved to be an excellent way to get a completely new perspective on ISO 27001 implementation – I make the webinars very interactive, so lot of people get involved and I provide them with practical tips on how to make their job easier".
