Why some of the world’s ‘most valuable’ brands pursue ISO27001 certification.

Last year, Forbes released a list of the world’s most valuable brands according to growth, revenue, and advertising expenditure.

No surprise that the list included the likes of IBM, Microsoft, and Coca-Cola but, upon digging a bit deeper, we found that ISO27001 certification linked a number of these companies together.

As multinational companies with high revenue turnovers, certifying their business to international standards is a sure-fire way to show to their stakeholders that they are implementing and continuing best practice across their business.

ISO27001 is the international information security management best-practice standard that helps companies protect their information assets, comply with local laws, and thrive as they give their customers the confidence that their information is protected.

See why some of the world’s ‘most valuable’ brands have sought ISO27001 certification:
