Organizations are becoming more and more dependent on external service providers for their daily operation. Think about:
- Software development
- Cloud services
- Software as a Service (SaaS)
- Hosting services
- Telecom, VOIP and videoconferencing
- Platform as a Service (PaaS)
- Network architecture and maintenance
- Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
In some industries, such as healthcare, some of these services can be mission critical.
Advantages of ISO 27001 certification
Over the last decade, ISO 27001 has evolved into a globally recognized standard for information security. It contains the requirements for implementing an information security management system (ISMS in short).
ISO 27001 compliance is often required during (government) tenders and procurement. Furthermore, ISO 27001 certification helps to build stakeholder trust.
Industry specific standards
Depending on the markets in which you are active, you may be required to implement or even certify to additional standards, such as:
- ISO 27017 (cloud security)
- ISO 27018 (privacy protection)
- VDA TISAX (for suppliers in the automotive industry)
- PCI-DSS (payment card industry)
- BIO (information security baseline for Dutch government bodies)
- ISAE 3402 (compliance assurance)
- SOC 2 (trust services criteria compliance assurance)

The whole trajectory (from start of implementation leading to certification) took no more than 4 months, I am told that is blazingly fast :-). With Instant 27001, almost anyone can understand and implement ISO standards. Seeing is believing!
Mees van Wel Hexa-IT
We honestly couldn’t have set up our ISMS in that time frame and price without Instant 27001. I had no prior experience or knowledge of ISO 27001 but was able to “master” Instant 27001 straight away. The positive feedback and compliments during the audit should unquestionably also go to Maurice and his team.
