ISO/IEC 27001 includes a comprehensive list of controls that outline how security can be embedded in all aspects of an organization. Although certification is not mandatory, implementing some or all of the controls can bring significant benefits not only to the organization itself, but also to its customers and suppliers. It ensures a high level of information security, reduces the risk of data leaks and business disruptions, and strengthens stakeholder confidence in the organization. Moreover, demonstrating compliance with ISO/IEC 27001 standards can provide a competitive advantage and create new business opportunities because it demonstrates that the organization is serious about protecting data and information security.
