ISO 27017 benefits for CSPs
Through our globally recognised brand, ISO 27017 certification from Lloyd’s Register (LR) provides credibility and promotes a relationship of trust from your customers and stakeholders by providing reassurance that the data and information you store is protected.
New business relationships
At LR, we deliver our services to companies operating in all industry sectors, worldwide. ISO 27017 certification from LR not only demonstrates you have robust processes and controls in place to protect your customer’s information, it can also help to grow your business globally. By using this common framework and best practice, coupled with the LR brand, you will have an advantage over your competition, making it easier for you to do business globally and become a preferred supplier of cloud services.
Regulation compliance and reputation
By implementing the additional controls in ISO 27017 and being externally assessed by LR, your organisation is mitigating the risk of an information security breach and is complying with local regulations. Not only are you protecting your organisation from becoming a victim of cyber-crime and incurring large fines, you are also protecting your brand reputation, as the risk of adverse publicity is reduced.
Statement of verification
If you’re looking to demonstrate to your customers and stakeholders that you take your information security roles and responsibilities seriously, LR can provide a statement of verification. This is a public and independent statement of your organisation’s capability to implement the additional controls in ISO 27017 to protect information that is stored in the cloud.
