New Figures for ISO 22301 and ISO 27001 Certifications

This year’s annual report from the International Standards Organisation (ISO) included figures on certifications to ISO 22301 for the first time ever: 1757 organisations had certified to the standard by the end of 2014.  The geographic distribution of certifications is similar to that seen with BS 25999 and the top three countries were: India (480 certifications), UK (345) and Japan (200).

The report also showed continued growth in ISO 27001 certifications with a 7% increase globally, to nearly 24 000; and an 18% increase in the UK to 2261.  Information technology remains by far the largest industry sector for certifications.
