FAQs

ISO 27701 covers many aspects of data privacy. We address some frequently asked questions below to support your compliance and trust transformation journey. 

ISO 27701 is a privacy standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It extends older standards like the ISO 27001 to include privacy controls that safeguard personal identifiable information (PII). It provides guidance to organizations in building and maintaining a privacy information management system (PIMS) that supports compliance with privacy regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

 

It should be noted that ISO 27701 is not a privacy law. Instead, it serves as a guide for companies in meeting many different privacy regulations across the world.

It applies to any data controllers and data processors who are engaged with the collection and processing of personal data.  

Organizations must develop a privacy information management system (PIMS), a privacy framework that safeguards users’ data privacy throughout its lifecycle. It should include internal and external auditing, risk assessment, data subjects and rights management, an effective vendor inventory, employee privacy training, incident response, and an information security management system (ISMS) that provides robust data security. The standard also offers accreditation so you can demonstrate your commitment to privacy management.
