There has been much scaremongering surrounding the potential fines for GDPR non-compliance, however, an Information Security Management System (ISMS) will help reduce the likelihood of breaches, enable you to react to them more quickly, and demonstrate the controls you have in place, in order to reduce the potential impacts of these security risks. 

ISO 27001 will help win new customers and retain existing business

Because this is the internationally recognized ‘best-practice’ standard, it makes the people you want to work will feel safe and secure and that you ( holding ISO 27001 certification) will look after their valuable assets and information security.

ISO 27001 boosts a reputation and builds trust in the organization

It doesn’t get much worse for an organization when the news hits that their systems have been hacked and customer data has been exposed and exploited. With an ISO 27001 information security management system you will be in a better position to identify breach risks and prevent them before they happen.
