    Great implementation guide! - By Aloka on October 27, 2017

This is the best implementation guide in the market. It is written in step-by-step, easy to follow guidelines using case studies as examples and several references where applicable. My advice would be to read this book in addition to using an external consultant if it is your first ISO 27001 project. This strategy will most likely guarantee project success.
