US shortage of ISO27001 lead implementers and auditors

The international standard for information security management, ISO 27001, is growing in popularity and reputation: in the US, certifications to the Standard increased 29% from 2012 to 2013 according to the latest ISO survey, and numbers are only expected to grow.

ISO 27001 sets out the best-practice specification for an information security management system (ISMS), a holistic approach to information security that allows organizations to manage the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of their information assets. As part of an overall management system, an ISMS functions to protect and monitor information and improve how its security is handled. The Standard provides a holistic approach to information security that encompasses people, processes, and technology.

The increased uptake of ISO 27001 means organizations will be looking for qualified lead implementers and auditors in the next 6-12 months.

There is a global – and national – shortage of information security professionals in the United States, and salaries in the sector are rising at an unprecedented rate as demand considerably outstrips supply.
