2101805 - Security Standards/ ISO2700: A tick-box exercise or an enabler to growth?

Oct 11, 2022 4:15pm ‐ Oct 11, 2022 5:15pm


Many organizations embark on certification in order to show compliance and win contracts. Very few see the real value and opportunities that come with adopting standards like ISO 27001, GDPR and Cyber Essentials. In this presentation, we’ll demonstrate the real tangible benefits to an organization, from increased efficiencies and content teams to measurable business growth that comes with the adoption and implementation of these standards. We'll discuss a real-life case study looking at a micro-business implementation of ISO 27001, the original drivers for implementation and the unexpected benefits derived from implementation. Alongside improving the overall maturity such benefits include increased value of the organization and enhancing the lives of all those working within the business. An alternative business take on the implementation of ISO 27001 and why more micro-businesses should adopt it.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the business, as well as the cybersecurity benefits, derived from achieving certification.
  • Create a business case for a small and micro organization to implement the Cyber Security Standard.
  • Describe the business benefits of a Cyber Security Standard to the senior management team in order to secure funding.
