ISO27001 vs SOC2
Which of these two certifications should I recommend to my client? I often work with ISO27001; however, my client is interested in SOC2 as they are a service provider. I do not have much experience with SOC2, but having reviewed the standard it seems similar to ISO.
They can hold both certifications. The question I would make is, which one first? the answer is ISO27001 because is widely recognized internationally and because you will cover a good amount of ground by the time you need to pass a SOC2 attestation.
