ISO17799 POSITIONING OR CERTIFICATION?
This is still the most agonized question for organizations approaching ISO17799. It is a very individual question for each - how far to go along the ISO17799 path. For some, nothing less than full certification will do, due to a variety of possible reasons. For many, however, a positioning brief is adequate.... reaching a position of compliance and then monitoring the market and industry carefully.
For most, the correct posture will be self evident. However, for those unsure of how far to proceed, the online presentation at: The ISO1 7799 Directory may be helpful. This presents ISO17799 in the context of past, present and possible future.
