Answer:

There are a significant number of variables to be considered when estimating an implementation cost, so without more detailed information it's not possible to precise a value. What I can tell you are some cost issues you should consider:
- Training and literature
- External assistance
- Technologies to be updated / implemented
- Employee's effort and time
- The certification process

Regarding ISMS maintenance costs, the above mentioned costs also have to be considered, but at different levels, and you have to add the surveillance audit costs for certification maintenance.
