ISO 27001 & ISO 9001 Integration

ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 (Quality Management Systems) can be integrated, and for many organisations go hand in hand. By reducing duplication between these management system standards, an integrated approach to compliance management enables organisations to reduce short- and long-term costs, dramatically decreasing duplication of effort and increasing effectiveness.
