ISO 27001 is a standard for information technology, security techniques, and information security management systems. Wolcott Group is conducting a 20-question survey to study how ISO 27001 "can assist you to assess how effectively your organization is governing information security."

A representative of the company told us that "everyone that takes the survey will also receive a complimentary copy of a benchmark study we will be producing in the fall with further analysis."

So if you curious about how your company compares to the standard and to other companies head over and take the survey.

Also consider taking a look at their whitepaper, "Raising the Standard of Information Security Governance with ISO 27001.
