What does an ISO 27001 certification bring to an organization?
When potential customers or vendors are researching different solutions, an ISO 27001 certification highlights an organization’s credibility and trust. Thus helping the business stand out against the competitors. And with data breaches and privacy concerns dominating headlines on a regular basis, consumers are generally more aware of the need for strong security protocols and only want to work with secure organizations.
How are ISO 27001 certifications used in the sales process?
We often see businesses hit roadblocks as they start sales conversions with larger companies. Bigger, enterprise-sized companies want to work with innovative organizations, but can’t until they answer long security questionnaires about the protocols and procedures in place. This leaves your organization underprepared to meet enterprise needs.
Investing in a certification like ISO 27001 can speed up the procurement process because it immediately assures your prospect that you work alongside industry best practices. Especially if your business works with companies outside of the U.S, having an ISO 27001 certification can empower your organization to focus on the selling and rather than security due-diligence.
