ISO 27701 was introduced in 2019 as an extended standard for ISO 27001 (Information Security Management System) .
The protection of personal information has become a key priority for businesses that create, collect or process it. Everyone has the right to decide who keeps their personal information and how this information is used. Therefore, businesses have a duty to use it properly and keep their information safe.
ISO 27701 goes deep into the protection of personal information and introduces systems that can assist a business in controlling, processing and managing the use of personal data.
The standard also provides a framework of processes that can help a business comply with strict privacy laws, such as the GDPR across the EU (General Data Protection Regulations). It also helps you avoid costly fines for violations.
How can ISO 27701 help my business?
ISO 27701 Another section adds to the information security management standard, ISO 27001.
