Nine Steps to Success: an ISO 27001 Implementation Overview May 16, 2008
As an IT professional starting the journey of implementing the ISO 27001 framework, I found this book by Alan Calder to be extremely useful. It's like having a $300/hr consultant at your elbow as you consider the aspects of gaining management support, planning, scoping, communication, etc. It's a short book, but written from first hand experience. It can also be shared with the other stakeholders in your organization to build an understanding of what an ISO 270001 project means.
