In the process of gaining an ISO 27001 certification, you’re inherently strengthening your organization’s cybersecurity (which in today’s technology-driven society is synonymous with the success of most businesses).
It requires you to take a hard look in the mirror. Does your cybersecurity program make your company as trustworthy as you’d like to be? You’ll be continually evaluating your policies and protocols against pieces of the standard, improving them to align with those best practices.
Once you’ve earned your ISO 27001 certification, the strong security culture that you’ve fostered will also provide you with a solid foundation to pursue other security certifications, such as SOC 2, NIST, or PCI DSS.
