17th February 2020 – Company Announcement
27k1 Ltd appoint CVG Strategy LLC as its’ first, US reseller of the 27k1 ISMS
According to the latest ISO 2018 Survey, demand for ISO/IEC 27001 certification in the US has increased by 37% since 2017. Given this growth trajectory and recognising that ISO 27001 is the global, “gold standard” in information security certification, 27k1 Ltd is delighted to announce that it has taken steps to introduce the 27k1 ISMS (Information Security Management System) software to the US market, appointing CVG Strategy, LLC, as its first US based system reseller.
Many companies are struggling with the implementation of a compliant ISMS for NIST 800-171 using ISO 27001 as solution. Now, with the U.S. Department of Defense’s announcement of Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) replacing NIST 800-171, ISO 27001 ISMS will be much easier to implement for all sizes of organizations. Now, with the 27k1 ISMS software to support the effort, companies can abandon the spreadsheet approach to process control.
