I’m sure that you’ve heard of ISO 9001 or perhaps 14001, but do you know why companies work hard to gain the certification?
Easy. They make more money.
First, let’s clarify what ISO certification is. The International Organisation Standards (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental worldwide organization. There are 162 global members. Quite simply; “International Standards make things work. They give world-class specifications for products, services and systems, to ensure quality, safety and efficiency. They are instrumental in facilitating international trade.”
ISO has published more than 21000 international standards covering virtually every industry. There is no doubt that ISO International Standards have a very positive impact on everyone, everywhere. Holders of ISO certificates outperform their competitors; winning more business and making more money. Wouldn’t you like to achieve the same?

Right now ISO 27001 is in demand most because it deals with information security – a particularly hot topic right now with information security breaches at some high profile companies
There’s fantastic business benefits for those that pass the test:
Happier employees make happier customers, who buy again and again, and recommend you to others too.
