Our history

Founded in 2002, IT Governance started as an eCommerce business offering just a few books and documentation toolkits on information security. Since then, the company has grown to become a global provider of comprehensive solutions and a recognized authority on ISO 27001 registration.

Based on their industry experience, Alan Calder and Steve Watkins co-wrote and published IT Governance: An International Guide to Data Security and ISO27001/ISO27002 (now in its fifth edition), the definitive compliance guide to ISO 27001. Today, this book is the basis for the UK Open University's postgraduate course on information security.

With cybersecurity becoming a top business priority and the demand for specialist services increasing, IT Governance has been growing rapidly. The company has considerably expanded its portfolio of products and services over the past few years while also deploying technology to innovate its offerings and enable it to deliver its solutions globally.
