"International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards with a network of the national standards institutes of 163 countries."

International Standards give state of the art specifications for products, services and good practice, helping to make industry more efficient and effective. Developed through global consensus, they help to break down barriers to international trade. It releases standards that provide requirements, specifications, guidelines or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose.

ISO 9000
   The ISO 9000 family of standards describes and outlines the processes and tasks that an organization carries out to meet customers’ quality requirements and enhance customer satisfaction. ISO 9000 also documents regulatory requirements and how an organisation should achieve overall continual improvement in pursuing these objectives. ISO 9001:2008 has been implemented by more than 1,000,000 organizations in over 176 countries.  
ISO 14000
   The ISO 14000 group of standards is focused instead on Environmental Management. This standard focuses upon the duties and responsibilities that an organization must uphold in order to minimise harmful effects on the environment. It also documents how organisations should strive to achieve continual improvement of its environmental performance. In this age of increased awareness on how all our culminated positive efforts can produce infinitely positive results in preserving our environment, this standard is gaining vast popularity among organisations all over the globe.

ISO /IEC 27001
   The ISO 27001 standard was published in October 2005, essentially replacing the old BS7799-2 standard. It is the specification for an ISMS ( Information Security Management System). Recently, the standard is officially re-launched as the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 with the effective date from the 1st October 2013.The objective of the standard itself is to "provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an Information Security Management System". Regarding its adoption, this should be a strategic decision. Further, "The design and implementation of an organization's ISMS is influenced by their needs and objectives, security requirements, the process employed and the size and structure of the organization". Today, more than a thousand certificates have been awarded across the world.
