So what are some of the benefits of ISO 27001? Truth be told, in most cases when a client is approaching us regarding ISO 27001, it is to get certified because the end customer is requesting ISO 27001 certification. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having that motivation as the starting point, but you will hopefully also realise, that there are many more benefits to ISO 27001 than just certification. Below I have listed some of the benefits of ISO 27001 that I find are key:

  1. Satisfying customer requirement of certification against ISO 27001
  2. Makes tender responses quicker and easier
  3. Decreasing the cost associated with information security breaches
  4. Reduces likelihood of facing prosecution and fines
