When it comes to information security, companies can’t be too careful. Protecting records and commercially sensitive information is critical to a company’s competitiveness and, therefore, its survival.
ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management (ISMS) is an important standard designed to help companies implement a robust approach to managing information security and building resilience. In fact, organizations that have complied with the standard have already seen significant benefits.
According to a survey of 645 organizations that have implemented ISO/IEC 27001, 87 per cent of respondents stated that implementing the standard had a positive or very positive outcome. The numerous benefits include:
- An increased ability to meet compliance requirements and respond to proposals;
- A decreased number of security incidents and downtime;
- Increased competitiveness;
- Increased internal and external customer satisfaction;
- An increase in the quality control of information security processes and procedures; and
- A reduction in the level of risk.
As a result, many companies also noted an increase in ROI and sales. An added bonus: implementing such a standard inspires trust in a business.
