Cloud solutions that can't proof Information Security through an ISO-27001 certificate just done come in.
More and more organizations realize how important it is to implement an ISMS (Information Security Management System) that protects their business. This is not surprising considering the rise in data breaches, cyberattacks, nation-state hacking incidents, and ransomware outbreaks. To protect themselves, global companies, enterprises, and governments investing heavily in cybersecurity.
Worldwide spending on information security products and services exceeded $114 billion in 2018. According to Gartner, for 2022, they forecast the market to grow to $170,4 billion in 2022.
With Binocs, we are convinced of the win-win that a solid ISMS brings. Not only does it streamline our own operations. It is also an IT-saving of at least 15K USD/year for the IT departments at our clients because of the reduced auditing and vendor management cost.

The ISO/IEC 27001 is the best-known certification for ISMS standards and is internationally recognized as a top tier certification. It specifies a management system that is intended to bring information security under management control and gives specific requirements.
