Over 400 ISO Certifications have been performed in the past twelve months. We’ve seen clients hesitate before implementing an information security management (ISMS) system for them to become certified. Each time, we have witnessed the results of our efforts. We want you, whether we are working with you or not, to see what we know is true.
Getting ISO 27001 certified will make a big difference in the lives of your customers and for you.
This will help you make a decision and we’ll go over the why. We will show you how to identify the five main benefits that this certification provides your organization in your market. You’ll be able to overcome any doubts about your commitment and you will understand the reward you can expect at the summit.
Here are some of the benefits of ISO 27001 certification
- Your Customers Will Feel Confident That You’re Protecting Their Interests
This is why everyone goes through compliance. But for ISO 27001 certification, is even more important. Why? Because of the holistic nature that we discussed before-the one which can seem intimidating from the outside.
It doesn’t matter how intimidating it might seem, implementing an ISO 27001 ISMS that is based upon a documented selection of controls, will show your customers that you have taken steps for data confidentiality, integrity, security, and availability.
That’s why you’ll be able to demonstrate it:
- This is a systematic approach to information safety that uses a range of mitigating control methods. It will include technology and people to identify, treat and manage information security risks in your organization.
- After you have set up your ISMS and received the initial certification it’s not done. To maintain and improve your ISMS, you’ll need to review its effectiveness at least once a year, conduct internal audits, and then report back to top management on the results.
You can prevent customer information from being misused by creating a risk management program that includes routine vigilance. The ISO 27001 certification process will help you assess the risk and mitigate any potential impacts. You will be able to make your customers feel comfortable with you and help them retain you. This may even increase the business relationship between the two of you.
- While Enhancing Your Competitive Edge, You’ll Be Able To Attract New Business
Your ISO 27001 certification will not only show that you have implemented solid security measures for all those you work with but will also help you stand out against other compliance options.
Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and others can all claim they have been certified and are doing “pretty good.” This will show anyone who is looking for your type of vendor that your concern about data security and privacy is serious. It will also help you build your reputation.
- You Will Satisfy Diverse Business, Legal And Regulatory Requirements
Every organization is unique, and each must follow different regulations. But everyone loves to kill two ducks with one stone.
- You’ll Have The Framework In Place To Support Other Compliance Options
SOC was once the default standard for compliance. But, ISO 27001 is now an option for organizations that are starting to lay the groundwork.
ISO 27001 is a broad framework that covers confidential and sensitive data. It does not include the more specific HIPAA and GDPR. The breadth and depth of coverage of ISO 27001 mean that you will likely be compliant with other standards if required.
