Passing the G2700 ISO 27001/27002 certification: What Materials you will need for the Exam.

The G2700 exam crams a lot of different security based information into one exam. Even though it’s an open book exam, if you don’t already know the information, or don’t have a fast way to find it, you won’t pass the exam.

This will be a two part article. The first, being a set of links and guides to gather the information necessary to pass the G2700 ISO 27001 certification exam. The second, will be how to create a printed index of your collected material, so you can quickly find the information you need during the exam.
