An ISO Security Self-Check

Survey maps your security practices to ISO 27001, and to those of other companies

Want to see how your enterprise measures up to other organizations' security practices -- as well as to the ISO 27001 standard?

The Wolcott Group is calling for participants in a free, online self-assessment survey that maps your company's information security practices to each of the eleven domains of the ISO 27001 standard for information security -- as well as to that of other organizations.

The 2007 ISO 27001 Benchmark Survey and Assessment is aimed at CIOs, CSOs, CISOs, and other IT security professionals. It has 20 questions, including some that gauge respondents' alignment with the ISO 17799 best-practice framework.

And there are even some free giveways for participants -- an auto-generated report that ranks your level of risk, plus some best-practices advice; an auto-generated report that shows how your answers compare with other organizations'; and a copy of the final 2007 ISO 27001 Information Security Governance Benchmark Report that will be released this fall when the survey is complete.

This survey is open for participation through August 31.
