The benefits of ISO 27001

You may want to implement an ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) to help deal with the cyber security challenge. Additionally, large organisations are more frequently requesting their suppliers have ISO 27001 certification as evidence that they are trustworthy. Whatever your motivation, you’ll have a more resilient business when you get ISO 27001 certified.

There are three overarching objectives of ISO 27001:

Confidentiality – ensuring access to information is appropriately authorised

Integrity – safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods

Availability – ensuring authorised users have access to information when required

Additionally, there are a number of benefits of ISO 27001 that you can enjoy once you’ve implemented your Information Security Management System and had it certified:

Key benefits of an ISO 27001 information security management system

Win new business

ISO 27001 provides evidence that you are credible and trustworthy. It helps you achieve ‘preferred supplier’ status and win more tenders.

Protects your organisation

An ISMS improves defences to reduce the risk of information security breaches including identity theft. It’s one of the best cyber security measures you can take.

Limits damage

Steps taken toward ISO 27001 certification will help minimise the severity of losses of data and the time taken to recover.

Embeds best practice

The policies, processes and procedures required to achieve ISO 27001 certification will continually improve due to the Plan Do Check Act (PDCA) principle of the system.

Reduces errors

Prevention is always better than cure. An ISMS helps you implement disciplines that minimise the chance of accidental leaks.

Relevance and accuracy

As well as enhancing security, ISO 27001 introduces discipline in managing the relevance and accuracy of stored information.


Access to information and the ability to modify it is managed more effectively with authorised users appropriately vetted

Cost savings

Because ISO 27001 reduces the possibility of an information security breach, you are less susceptible to lost business and fines.

Enables compliance

ISO 27001 helps ensure relevant laws (including GDPR), regulations and contractual requirements are met.
