Although organizational assurances of quality and security may be verbally asserted, or even documented within legally binding trade agreements (such as contracts and service level agreements), customers can, and often do, require more objective assurances of quality and security.
Organizations that can demonstrate their adherence to recognized global and/or industry protection standards, will benefit both with increased revenues and reduced costs to operations. Many organizations achieve quality and security status via national or international certification programs. Independent, approved certifiers evaluate an organization’s quality/security program compliance against formally documented, national/international standards.
