It should. ISO is a rigid set of standards.  While not the ISO certification that you are specifically refering to, ISO 27001 has been a gold standard for security standards for some time, and if a company (Google for instance) is ISO 27001 certified, it sends a message to me that they take security very seriously.  I definitely respect ISO certification, and given the choice between two companies, one with ISO and one without, I would go with the one that is ISO certified.  Check this out to get an idea how comprehensive the procedures and audit checklists are:
