ISO 27701 PIMS Certification
ISO/IEC 27701 certification is a robust and comprehensive standard that builds on the principles outlined in ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/ICE 27002, which enable organizations to be better at management, by defining the exact scope of the management system, and protection of data. It was introduced in August 2019 and is meant for Privacy Management Information System (PIMS) with Personal Identifiable Information (PII) controllers and processors responsible for PII processing.
What is ISO/ICE 27701?
ISO/IEC 27701 is a standard that primarily focuses on information security. It is a proactive approach to the ever-evolving and relevant field of cybersecurity. The certification involves a thorough review and assessment of people and software to ensure risk management, cyber readiness, and preparedness to respond to any event. In cyber security, using a Data Protection Management System is seen as significant in finding a solution for data protection incidents.
Who needs the ISO/ICE 27701 standard?
ISO/IEC 27701 standard is a must-have for any organization or business that handles sensitive data, personal or for clients. Establishing a comprehensive system designed to proactively respond to security risks is recommended. The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has simply provided the rules for the DSMS. It formulates strict legal requirements as to what is allowed or prohibited (Business Rules).
