Free Download: ISO 27001 Global Report 2018

Over the past ten years, the popularity of ISO 27001, the international standard that describes best practice for an ISMS (information security management system), has increased significantly.

Certification to ISO 27001 across Asia Pacific has grown in high double digits at 23% over the past five years (ISO Survey 2016). 

ISO 27001 certifications have grown the highest in New Zealand (286%), Australia (203%) and China (78%). The top countries in Asia Pacific with the highest growth in volume are China, Japan, India, Australia and the Philippines.

As a global expert on ISO 27001, IT Governance has conducted research to explore the challenges and drivers behind the Standard’s increased adoption.

The findings provide useful insights for lead implementers, auditors, consultants and heads of security teams, and justify the continued growth and adoption of the Standard globally.
