Company Background

IT Governance Limited is the leading global provider of cyber risk and privacy management solutions with a special focus on cyber resilience, data protection, PCI DSS, ISO 27001 and cyber security.

We provide expert information and guidance on many of today's most critical IT-GRC issues, such as information security (including ISO27001, ISO27002, and PCI DSS), IT governance (including COBIT®, ITIL®, and ISO20000), business continuity (including ISO22301) and project governance (PRINCE®2).

IT Governance's commitment is to offer only the very best IT-GRC products available on the market. These include our own proprietary books, toolkits, software, and services, and an extensive range of other books and resources published by many of the world's most respected authors and organizations.

Our objective is to provide everything needed to meet today's technology compliance challenges in a single place: the most authoritative and helpful books; the most intuitive specialist toolkits and software; access to best practice training workshops and courses, both our own and third party; and specialist consultancy services grounded in our deep understanding of the subject area.

IT Governance was founded by chief executive Alan Calder, the prolific information security and IT governance author. Together with colleague Steve Watkins, he wrote IT Governance: An International Guide to Data Security and ISO27001/ISO27002 (now in its 5th edition), the definitive compliance guide to the ISO27001 standard. This book is the basis for the Open University's postgraduate course on information security.

Other books by Alan Calder include:

IT Governance's products and services are particularly well suited to mid-size private and public sector organizations, which need to respond to the challenges of information security and IT governance in a cost-effective manner.

Our ethos is "non-geek," approaching IT-GRC issues from a non-technology background. We share the priorities and perspective of non-IT executives and talk to management in its own language. We also help technologists to communicate more effectively with senior executives and board directors, thereby helping align technology with the business.
