Cyber security: it pays to be ISO27001-compliant!

Cyber attacks cost the UK £27 billion in 2011. Is your company really secure? How would you know?

The average cost to UK business per record lost increased from £47 in 2007 to £79 in 2011. (1)

£37 of this cost was incurred indirectly, from factors such as lost business, reputational damage or churn of existing customers. Customers that may not come back, because now they don’t trust you.

And then there’s data protection, legal compliance and directors’ reputational damage.

And things are getting worse.

ISO27001 is the international Information Security standard recommended by the market leaders.

It pays to be ISO27001 compliant. Here’s why:

A recent survey (2) shows that consumers are taking privacy and security into account when making purchasing decisions, and will consider leaving companies in the wake of a data breach incident. Wouldn’t you?

Are you ready to protect your business from this revenue drainer, resulting from loss of reputation?

Do you want to find out in the press or on TV that your company has just been hacked?

An ISO27001 Certificate says that your Board takes cybercrime and growing threats seriously.

120+ Companies are now cybersecure with their ISO27001 certification  thanks to help from our experts.
