There are 4 essential business benefits that a company can achieve with the implementation of this information security standard:
Comply with legal requirements: there are more laws, regulations and contractual requirements related to information security, and the good news is that most of them can be resolved by implementing ISO 27001 – this standard gives you the perfect methodology to comply with them all.
Achieve marketing advantage: if your company gets certified and your competitors do not, you may have an advantage over them in the eyes of the customers who are sensitive about keeping their information safe.
Lower costs: the main philosophy of ISO 27001 is to prevent security incidents from happening and every incident, large or small, costs money. Therefore, by preventing them, your company will save quite a lot of money. And the best thing of all investment in ISO 27001 is far smaller than the cost savings you’ll achieve.
Better organization: typically, fast-growing companies don’t have the time to stop and define their processes and procedures as a consequence; very often the employees do not know what needs to be done, when, and by whom. Implementation of ISO 27001 helps resolve such situations, because it encourages companies to write down their main processes (even those that are not security-related), enabling them to reduce the lost time of their employees.
