ISO27k success story from Malta

Thanks to a small team from the Information Security Department, the Malta IT Agency has successfully implemented ISO27k and been certified compliant with ISO/IEC 27001.

Getting MITA's widespread engagement with the project was a challenge, helped by overt support from above:
"Getting resources on board and having information security recognised as a priority for teams who work to deliver a service was the main challenge encountered by the project team throughout the process.  A key to successfully retain the certificate is the ongoing support received by senior management both at a department level but also at a CEO/board level.

ISO27001 brought staff closer to security than ever before. MITA clients and suppliers see certification against such a professional standard as a proof of employing good security practices."
Well done MITA!
