ISO17799 - A WORLD WIDE PHENOMINA
Disney would have said "it's a small world after all", but the global take on of ISO17799 proves that organizations the planet over are embracing it with enthusiasm.

To illustrate the global nature of the standard, we recently created a table from the last 500 purchases of the standard from the ISO17799 Electronic Shop (www.iso17799.net). The figures below do come with a serious health warning though - the Electronic Shop is a credit card purchase system. Some cultures are not as comfortable or familiar as others with credit card purchase and will therefore have their purchase position significantly understated. An example is India, which acquires substantial numbers of the standard, only two of which show in the last 500 from the download location.

That aside, the table makes interesting reading:
