  2. Notice the offerings are grouped into Global, US Government, Industry, and Regional.

  3. In the Global group, click ISO 27001.

    Note: The ISO 27001 Information Security Management Standards page is typical of the type of complaince information we provide.

  4. Notice there is an overview of the standard; in-scope cloud services; audits, reports and certificates; assessments and reports; FAQs; resources; and white papers.

    Note: Is there a compliance offering your organization is most interested in?
