PECB ISO/IEC 27701  – Privacy Management

What is ISO/IEC 27701?

ISO/IEC 27701 standard was published in August 2019, and it is the first international standard that deals with privacy information management. The standard will assist organisations in establishing, maintaining and continually improving a Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) by enhancing the existing ISMS based on the ISO/IEC 27001 requirements and ISO/IEC 27002 guidance. It can be used by all organisations regardless of size, complexity or country. 

Why is ISO/IEC 27701 important for you?

The exponential growth of the collection of personal information and the increasing data processing has led to privacy concerns. Hence, implementing a Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) in compliance with the requirements and guidance of the ISO/IEC 27701 will enable organisations to assess, treat, and reduce risks associated with the collection, maintenance and processing of personal information.

This standard is essential for every organisation responsible and accountable for Personally Identifiable Information (PII) as it provides requirements for managing and processing data and safeguarding privacy. It enriches an already implemented ISMS to address privacy concerns adequately by assisting organisations to understand the practical approaches involved in the implementation of effective management of PII.
