Evantix Releases Free Guide to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Vendor Risk Management

New E-Book Helps Enterprises Transition to Updated Version of Information Security Standard

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/26/14 -- Evantix, a leading web-based vendor risk management platform, today announced it is releasing a guide to help enterprises and their risk staffs adapt to the new ISO 27001:2013 information security standard. The e-book, ISO/IEC 27001:2013: What Vendor Risk Managers Need to Know, is available for free download at http://info.evantix.com/guide-to-iso-iec-27001-2013.

First published in 2005, ISO 27001 brought a new focus to information security. As time passed, technology improved, and business practices evolved, an update to the 27001 became necessary to adapt to the IT environments of 2013. Released last October, the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 streamlines the certification process and eases the transition for companies already certified for the original 27001. Still, the update does present a challenge for enterprises, risk management staffs, and vendors as they strive to stay compliant with the new guidelines. Evantix's e-book helps organizations with this process by:

  • Detailing the major components of the update
  • Explaining how the update will affect risk managers and vendors
  • Offering steps that vendor risk staffs can take to achieve compliance with the new standards

"The ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is the latest step in keeping data safe and helping protect your company's bottom line. Ensuring IT vendors are living up to this important standard is also crucial," says Jason James, vice president of risk advisory services at Evantix. "This new e-book answers what the revision means for companies and their vendors. With the right plan and the right solution, assessing and managing vendor IT risk becomes less of a chore and more of a proactive initiative that helps your organization grow. Evantix can provide the plan and the solution."
