How to present ISO 27001 benefits to the top management?
To get the top management interested in ISO 27001, you need to show them the business benefits of implementing this standard. There are 4 potential benefits:
1) Compliance - e.g., getting a certificate if this is what a client requires, and by doing this keeping this client.
2) Marketing edge - e.g., if your company has an ISO 27001 certificate and your competitors do not, you might get new clients and new revenue because of it.
3) Lowering the expenses - since ISO 27001 is very helpful in preventing incidents, you will also reduce potential costs that would happen if an incident occurs.
4) Improving internal organization - ISO 27001 requires you to define roles, responsibilities, and processes more precisely, therefore forcing you to think through how to organize your company.
