NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- – The most recent ISO Survey of Certifications has revealed that, over the past decade, ISO 27001 certifications have grown by 1,782% in North America.

IT Governance USA founder and executive chairman, Alan Calder, said: “This is a huge step forward for data protection in North America. This increase in certifications is encouraging and means more organizations are heeding the warnings that we as a company issue on a regular basis regarding the dangers of not being compliant.”

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001) is the international standard that describes the requirements for an ISMS (information security management system). IT Governance has delivered qualification-based training to more than 7,000 people worldwide on implementing and auditing ISO 27001.

Calder added: “The benefits of achieving ISO 27001 certification are widely known and have proven instrumental in ISMS implementation and auditing in a variety of industries. These benefits include avoiding penalties and financial losses due to data breaches, and meeting local and global security laws such as the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).”
