ISO/IEC 27001:2013 – Act early to maximise transition benefits

July 2014

The ISO/IEC 27001 standard, originally known as BS7799, was initially developed in the 1990s by the former Department for Trade & Industry in conjunction with major companies including HSBC, Shell and Unilever. It aimed to provide an internationally recognised code of best practice to benchmark information
