Building the business case for an ISMS

Information Security Management Systems offer a compelling RoI

Having a professional Information Security Management System (ISMS) that follows a recognised standard like ISO 27001:2013/17 can be a big investment. However the benefits from the ISMS can easily outweigh the cost. In fact the Return on Investment (RoI) can be much more attractive than most business growth initiatives, especially if new business or organisation survival is dependent on having an ISMS that stakeholders can trust or it’s required to meet a regulation.

The challenge for some organisations is working that RoI out and seeing information security management as a useful place to invest. It’s often considered a grudge purchase by leaders who are less experienced in the topic.  However with powerful stakeholders becoming more nervous about supply chain risk, increasing regulation and growing threats from cybercrime, doing nothing is not an option.

We have produced a comprehensive whitepaper on how to build the business case for an ISMS.  It takes the reader from some of the fundamentals for planning the case through to addressing more significant issues for organisations. Organisations that are truly serious about information security management can now more easily calculate the costs, benefits and consequences to show the ISMS RoI.


An ISMS delivers a positive return on investment. The goal of our whitepaper is to show you why, what, and how you can get RoI from an ISMS that fits the business needs.
