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
  • Co-location
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

In some situations, such as healthcare, these services can even be seen as mission critical.

Advantages of ISO 27001 certification

In the last decade, ISO 27001 has become a globally recognized standard for information security. Achieving certification will provide certainty to your clients that information security is taken seriously.

ISO 27001 compliance is often required during (government) tenders and procurement. Furthermore, ISO 27001 certification has proven to be a commercial advantage.

Industry specific standards

Depending on the markets in which you are active, industry or government may require you 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)

Advantages of Instant 27001

Implementing ISO 27001, or any of the above mentioned standards, can seem a daunting task at first. The ISO documentation is designed to be generic and does not provide guidelines or samples.

As a result, it is tempting to resort to commercially available template sets. Most of these kits are designed to be applicable to all kinds of organizations, verticals and regions, without being explicit or specific.

Instant 27001 is developed as a lean and mean approach towards ISO 27001. The supplied samples are written with tech companies in mind, so it requires very little imagination to make the necessary modifications (if at all necessary).
