So Oscar, please explain to everyone what the 27001Academy is all about?
Hi folks. That’s easy. The 27001Academy is an educational and consulting website created to help people like you implement ISO 27001 and/or ISO 22301 effortlessly. It’s an innovative take on the do-it-yourself method, which takes the headache out of figuring out everything all by yourself.
Well, Oscar, what role do you play at the 27001Academy?
I am a friendly, personalized virtual consultant, here to help you organize your implementation and keep things as simple as possible. I don’t expect you to know everything right up front, so I guide you through the whole process – from deciding if ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 are right for your company, until you reach a successful end to your implementation. My role is the same as a live consultant, only I don’t send you a bill for my help. I’m also wiser 🙂
It seems like consultants aren’t your favorite people. Why would that be?
No, no, I don’t dislike consultants. They’re probably nice enough people. It’s just that for the majority of small and medium businesses, I believe that paying a consultant is kind of the outdated – not to mention, expensive – way to implement ISO 27001 / ISO 22301. When you have an online resource center like the 27001Academy, there’s simply no need for a live, in-person consultant. Things have changed; new and better services and approaches spring up that make everyone’s lives easier. The 27001Academy is just one example. With our do-it-yourself (with support) approach, your organization can implement ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 quickly and easily – you just need the Internet and a cup of coffee (or whatever motivates you!).
But, with an online service, how can people find help if they get stuck?
Oh, that’s a good question. To begin with, the way we designed all the tools and resources in the 27001Academy, it’s probably easy enough to keep you from ever getting stuck anyway.
Of course, everyone gets stuck some time! So, if it happens to you, we offer several ways to help:
What terrific advice! Thank you for talking to us, Oscar!
Oh, anytime! I’m always available; just fly into my office whenever you need a hand. Or a wing.
