ISO 27001 Information
I just received this e-mail on Monday morning September 5, 2011 that I passed the ISO 27001 Lead Auditor Exam that I took on July 22, 2011 at the conclusion of a 5-day course. I will now have an ISO 27001 Auditor (provisional status) Certification and it makes 71 in the total of my certification list... See http://billslater.com/certifications for more information.
The ISO 27001 Lead Auditor Exam was a BRUTAL exam. It was three hours long, 16 pages, hand written. I took it on Friday morning, July 22, 2011. So how unusual is the ISO 27001 Lead Auditor title, once I earn finally that? There are only 7 to 9 of these ISO 27001 Lead Auditors in North America!
The ISO 27001 standard is an international Information Security management compliance framework for an Information Security Management System that is uses Plan – Do – Check – Act to continually improve. It basically helps a company manage its risks associated with Information Technology Assets and Practices down to levels that the management team can recognize and accept.
