There is a continued growth in regulations and industry specific requirements regarding information security and data protection.
Customer relationships and Business to Business relationships are requiring independent verification that organisations have security controls in place, ensuring they are aligning to the principles of Security, Privacy, Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability when handling confidential information.
ISO27001 and SOC2 are the gold standard certifications when organisations want to demonstrate that they have robust security controls in place to address security threats.
These certifications illustrate that an organisation is following industry best practice and implementing rigorous security controls which are being verified through independent security audits.
- More organisations are realising the benefits of achieving compliance with a trusted security standard to demonstrate an elevated level of trust with customers, prospects, and partners.
- Having globally recognised independent security certifications is not only important for internal security controls and risk management, but also a key differentiator for organisations being successful in competitive commercial scenarios. It also reduces the overhead of overwhelming and time-consuming security questionnaires which are required before working with many enterprise customers.
- Achieving certification is a great milestone for any organisation and demonstrates a high-performing security-focused culture.
- Compliance will not only promote your organisations reputation when you transact with other organisations, it also supports your organisation to follow a set of robust best practices when it comes to keeping your data, and that of partners, safe and secure.
