ISO 27001 Certification

Helping Businesses Build Trust And Growth Through The ISO 27001 Certification

Information security is an increasing area of priority for businesses and service providers across all industries. Staying on top of the latest legal and technological developments can be a challenge, however. The ISO 27001 certification is a way for businesses and entrepreneurs to gain valuable knowledge and a trusted credential in this vital area.

At Kobes Legal PLLC, our lead attorney, Brett Kobes, holds the ISO 27001 certification himself – specifically, the ISO 27001 Foundations Course and ISO 27001 Lead Implementer. He also helps businesses obtain it as a key strategy in a comprehensive information security plan.

What Is The ISO 27001 Certification?

Developed by National Quality Assurance (NQA), the certification is an international standard for information security management systems. It’s primarily geared toward tech companies, but in today’s world of remote work and cloud computing, nearly every business can benefit from it.

The certification is an independent, third-party credential that serves as a badge of trust. It’s a tangible way to demonstrate your organization’s commitment to information security.

What Types Of Businesses Can Benefit From The Certification?

Any business that uses technology as a core part of its operations can benefit from the ISO 27001 certification. It’s a way to set yourself apart from competitors and grow your business. It can serve as the foundation for a trusted reputation with customers, vendors, partners and other key allies.

What Does Certification Cost?

The cost of obtaining the ISO 27001 certification depends on numerous factors, including:

  • The size, nature and complexity of your organization
  • The geographic area where you do business
  • The number of stakeholders you have
  • Whether you do business in California (which brings into play the California Consumer Privacy Act)

Our attorney can advise you on the estimated costs involved in pursuing the certification.
