Privacy Information Management System

ISO 27701:2019 is an internationally recognized standard that provides guidelines for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving a Privacy Information Management System (PIMS). It is an extension to the ISO/IEC 27001 standard, which is focused on Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). ISO 27701 was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and published in August 2019.

The main objective of ISO 27701:2019 is to assist organizations in protecting and preserving the privacy of personal data they process. With the increasing focus on data privacy and the implementation of data protection regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union, ISO 27701 serves as a valuable tool for organizations to manage privacy-related risks effectively.

Key aspects of ISO 27701:2019 include:

ISO 27701 can be used as a standalone standard or implemented as an extension to an existing ISMS based on ISO/IEC 27001. It is designed to be adaptable and scalable to meet the specific needs of organizations of all sizes and types.

By implementing ISO 27701:2019, organizations can demonstrate their commitment to protecting individuals’ privacy, improve data protection practices, and comply with relevant privacy regulations. As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, ISO 27701 was a relatively new standard, and its adoption and significance were expected to grow as data privacy concerns continued to rise globally.
