Organizations are becoming more and more dependent on external service providers for their daily operation. Think about:
- 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)
- ISO 27701 (privacy information management system)
- VDA TISAX (for suppliers in the automotive industry)
- PCI-DSS (payment card industry)
- ISAE 3402 (compliance assurance)
- SOC 2 (trust services criteria compliance assurance)

In the search for an (information security) management system, Instant 27001 seemed very attractive with all included templates. We were pleasantly surprised with the ease of use of this system. The more we utilized it, the more tools we uncovered to facilitate the implementation process. The system's structure also offers a clear overview of the standard, aiding in understanding its functioning and interactions. After the internal audit, and some additional insights of Maurice, we were well-prepared for certification, which proceeded seamlessly!

Not only did we manage to become certified in a relative small time period, but it also helped us improve some of the processes within our company. I really would recommend this to anybody starting with ISO. We completed the implementation and certification for ISO 27001, ISO 9001 and NEN 7510 within 6 months!
