Zagreb, Croatia Hrvatska (PressExposure) March 21, 2012 -- One of the biggest obstacles for companies starting to implement ISO 27001 is writing various documents required by this information security standard. The Information Security & Business Continuity Academy has launched ISO 27001 Video Tutorials, a new product that facilitates the process of documentation writing.
According to ISO Survey of Certifications published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO 27001 is within the 5 most popular management standards, and is also one of the standards with the highest growth in the number of certified companies - about 20 % annually. However, the fact that a large percentage of companies that have started to implement this standard never finish the job is less known - some estimates say this rate is about 50 %. The reason for failure is very often insufficient time or lack of knowledge for writing the documentation - ISO 27001 has very specific requirements about how the documentation should look like.
"I've worked with quite many companies as a consultant, and most of those companies struggle with the same thing - how to fill in the documentation," says Dejan Kosutic, the author of the video tutorials. He also added "I believe these video tutorials will increase the success rate of ISO 27001 projects by at least 25 %, and increase the speed of implementation by 50 %".
At the moment 13 video tutorials are available, and each month 2 new tutorials will be published. A total of 50 video tutorials are planned, which will cover all the steps in ISO 27001 implementation - from setting up the project all through successful certification.
