Privacy management

You know that privacy has become a society wide need that affects all sectors of activity.

You want to be able to confidently manage the privacy risks of the data your organization holds/processes.

You need to show your teams that privacy is not just the responsibility of data managers or IT departments, but of everyone who interacts with personal data.

You are looking for a simple and effective way to address the issue of generalization of consistent data processing practices within your organization.


What is ISO 27701 ?

ISO/IEC 27701 is a privacy extension to ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002. The aim of this standard is to enhance the existing Information Security Management System (ISMS) with additional requirements, in order to establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve a Privacy Information Management System (PIMS).  

ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 165 national standards bodies. Through its members, it brings together experts to share knowledge and develop voluntary, consensus-based, market relevant international standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges. 

ISO/IEC 27701 outlines a framework for Personally Identifiable Information (PII) Controllers and Processors to manage privacy controls to reduce the risk to the privacy rights of individuals. This standard is intended to be a certifiable extension to ISO/IEC 27001 certifications. This means that organizations planning to seek an ISO/IEC 27701 certification, will also need to have an ISO/IEC 27001 certification. 

This solution will help you to fulfill the requirements of ISO/IEC and moreover, to stay compliant with it.

The implementation of a privacy management system (PIMS) requires the establishment of an information security management system, which can be extended to privacy at a later stage. Organizations therefore need to study their systems and processes and then to implement controls.
