ISO 17799 and ISO 27001 Newsletter

The David L Watson Interview

The following questions were presented:

Where do you see the IRCA Scheme going?

To be honest, nowhere much in the UK but worldwide take up is starting to take off and there is stated to be a lot of activity in the Far East at the moment.

This looks like a rerun of the c:cure scheme in the UK with some of the same people being certified and about the same numbers of certified auditors registered.

While CBs are able to use non-IRCA Certified Auditors in the UK , there will never be a drive to have all BS 7799 auditors certified by IRCA.

I note that BSI has a BSI Registered BS 7799 Auditor Qualification but they do not publish details of those who have passed it. This is an internal designation and is not certificated by IRCA.
