Thank you for your response, I appreciate it. 

I do have two questions which are: 

  1. what are the key clauses of ISO 27001:2013?
  2. Relationship between iso 27001:2013 and establishing an effective ISMS within an organization.

I loved how you said that ISO 27001 certification can give you an enhanced competitive edge. My sister was at my house last night for dinner, and she was wondering what she could do to make her company. I'll pass this information along to her so that she can look into getting ISO 27001 certified.
