Introduction ISO/IEC 27001:2015 (ISO 27001) certification is becoming more of a conversation in most major businesses in the United States. To provide some depth, there was a 20% increase in ISO 27001 certificates maintained globally (comparing the numbers from 2014 to 2015 as noted in the recent ISO survey). As for North America, there was a 78% growth rate in ISO 27001 certificates maintained, compared to those in North America in 2014. So it is clear evidence that the compliance effort known as ISO 27001 is making its imprint on organizations in the United States. However, it’s just the beginning. Globally, there are 27,563 ISO 27001 certificates maintained, of which only 1247 are maintained in the United States; that is 4.5% of all ISO 27001 certificates.

In the popular modern musical Hamilton, the titular character is given an opportunity by George Washington. Hamilton can stay on the front lines of the American Revolution, or he can become the general’s aide-de-camp. It’s a choice between gaining glory amidst the fighting or an office job with an opportunity to influence who would become our first president.
