I work for the U.S. Library of Congress and am doing a report for Congress on cybersecurity governance. I'm trying to find out if anyone has done any analysis of the effectiveness of certification under BS7799 Part 2--that is, have there been any attempts to measure how much certification per se improves cybersecurity (or what other impacts it has), either in comparison to use of ISO17799 with no related certification (as, e.g., is the case in the U.S.), or certification using a different scheme (e.g., COBIT?)? I would greatly appreciate any info anyone has on this.
