The Pursuit…or Not…of ISO 27001/ISMS/BS7799 Certification

Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

Last week my blog poll was, “Is your organization planning to pursue ISO 27001 certification in 2007 or 2008?”
I asked this after reading an SC Magazine article that I recently blogged about, “Are the U.S. Numbers Planning For ISMS (ISO 27001) Certification Really At 80%?”
As I had indicated, based upon my many discussions with a very wide range of CISOs, I thought this number was way too high.
And now for the results of my *ADMITTEDLY UNSCIENTIFIC WEBPOLL*…drum roll, please; Thhuudddrrrrrrrrrrrrr…


ISMS/ISO27001 Certification Poll…Ending Sunday

If you have not yet clicked a button on my poll regarding ISMS/ISO27001 certification (see right side of page and scroll down a little) please do so! I’m finding it interesting that a large portion (36%) of those who have clicked for the poll so far are not aware of the certification. This perhaps calls to question the folks at BSI who forecast that 80% of U.S. companies will be pursuing certification in the next couple of years.
See my original post for more information about it.
