Most ISO27001 implementations will involve a Windows® environment at some level. Unfortunately, there is often a knowledge gap between those trying to implement ISO27001 and the IT specialists trying to put the necessary best practice controls in place using Microsoft’s technical controls. ISO27001 in a Windows® Environment bridges that gap and gives essential guidance to everyone involved in a Windows®-based ISO27001 project.

Successfully implement ISO27001 in a Windows® environment with this step-by-step guide

The third edition of ISO27001 in a Windows® Environment covers Windows® 8 and Microsoft® Windows Server® 2012. It is also completely aligned to ISO27001:2013, the latest version of the international standard for information security management.

  • Details the various controls required under ISO27001, together with the relevant Microsoft® products that can be used to implement them.
  • Explains how to make the most of Windows® security features.
  • Ideal for bridging the knowledge gap between ISO27001 and Windows® security.
