Go it alone

Because you have to create each document yourself, and try to figure out every step yourself, this is definitely the most labor- and time-intensive method. Lots of organizations try this first, but only a very few actually manage to become certified. Oftentimes, after several months (or even years) have gone by, these organizations find that they wasted countless hours and large sums of money without any results.

Bring in a consultant

It’s true that a consultant can lead you through the whole process, but after that comes a huge bill. But, if money isn’t a concern and you want to go this route, be sure and use our ISO 27001 / ISO 22301 consultant checklist to fully vet the consultant you select (consultants’ knowledge and experience can vary greatly).
