Coins and money notes

How much does ISO 27001 cost?

Investing in an ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) can help you protect your business, no matter what size it is. Gaining ISO 27001 certification enables you to demonstrate to stakeholders that your system is fully compliant with the standard.

Citation ISO Certification offers you a cost-effective route to certification that also removes much of the hassle.

The cost of ISO 27001 certification depends on several factors. These include:

  • The company’s sector.
  • The company’s annual turnover.
  • The number of employees in the organisation.
  • We would also need to know if you require industry-specific accreditation (such as ASCB or UKAS).


We are committed to keeping the cost of ISO 27001 certification affordable for all our clients. That’s why we focus on making the process straightforward. We will save you money because, instead of creating complex document trails, we will build an ISMS that works for you.

The ISO certification process

With the help of Citation ISO Certification, the certification process can take as little as 45 days to complete


A consultant will inspect your existing process and help you understand where you are in relation to where the ISO Standard requires you to be. They will also produce a documented management system which defines your documented information. We can also provide you with a template for you to write this yourself, if you’d prefer.


We will then provide you with an audit containing all of our findings. The report will highlight any changes you will need to make. You will need to ensure that these changes are made before arranging the next meeting. We can provide tutorial videos and templates to help you make any changes, as well as unlimited telephone support.


An accredited auditor will visit your organisation to check that all of the required procedures are in place and are being correctly followed. If any anomalies were found during the initial audit, the auditor will need to see evidence that these have been addressed.
