Google has announced that its Google Apps for Business productivity suite has earned the ISO 27001 certification.
As with any other project, if you do not ensure enough money and human resources, your ISO 27001 project will fail.
Obtaining an ISO 27001 or BS 25999-2 certificate is not mandatory, however most of the companies implementing either of these standards want to get certified – the main reason for that is that they want to achieve a marketing advantage.
ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 may seem like quite different standards, but when you take a closer look at both, you can find a lot of similarities.
While many business continuity methodologies exist for more than 20 years, none of them have really managed to include business continuity in regular management duties – this is probably why BS 25999-2 is emerging more and more as a leading business continuity standard worldwide.
