Free calculator - Duration of ISO 27001/ISO 22301 implementation
This calculator will help you estimate the time needed for your ISO 27001 or ISO 22301 implementation. Since these two standards are equally complex, the factors that influence the duration of both of these standards are similar, so this is why you can use this calculator for either of these standards.
Please enter the data only for the scope of your ISMS (Information Security Management System) / BCMS (Business Continuity Management System) - if your scope is smaller than the whole company, please do not enter the data for your whole company. E.g., if your company has 1000 employees, but the scope of implementation includes only 30 employees, your answer to question #1 will be "21 to 50".
Note: we won't share your information with anyone.

Have you already implemented some other standard like PCI DSS, ITIL, ISO 9001, or similar?
We're just starting to implement it.
It is implemented only formally, but in reality it doesn't work very well.
It is implemented and it has helped us somewhat, but not as much as it could.
Yes, the standard is implemented, regularly maintained and improved.
Are you going to use a consultant or some other in-house or external ISO 27001/ISO 22301 expert?
Only for parts of the project.
Yes, for the whole project.
Are you going to use documentation templates for your policies, procedures, plans, forms, etc.?
Only for some of the documents.
Yes, we're going to use the complete Documentation Toolkit.

Yes, management has clear objectives and is aware of all the commitments required.
Estimated number of months required for implementation:
Please note that this estimate is calculated on the basis of normal implementation workload - that is, the implementation is done at a pace that doesn't require employees to work long hours of overtime. This kind of project could be done faster than this estimate shows, but it means that some other projects would have to be neglected, and that stress for the implementation team would be much higher.
