ISO 27001 and EU GDPR

we are primarely interested in GDPR implementation and compliance. But there isn't any practice in our country and overall knowledge and "data security culture" is pretty low, so I asked myself: Is there some ISO certificate that can help? I see such certificate as just one step more towards full GDPR compliance... We've undertaken some actions in the past to implement ISO 9001:2008 certificate, and our company clearly benefited from it. I haven' had much time to fully study ISO 27001 certificate so I don't know the details but again, we are interested in full GDPR compliance and tht's our final goal. I don't know if ISO 27001 can help achieve that goal - maybe you can give me the enswer.
