Consumers are demanding greater transparency from businesses about the data they collect – and regulators are taking action. Certification to ISO 27701 assures stakeholders that your organization takes data privacy seriously.

In today’s increasingly connected world, consumers generate massive volumes of data each day. Concern is mounting, however, over how companies capture, use and protect this data. In response to public pressure, governments around the world are implementing ambitious regulations to ensure the privacy and security of private information.

To help organizations manage personal data in line with consumer expectations and in compliance with rapidly tightening regulatory requirements, Bureau Veritas offers ISO 27701 certification and training. Implementing an ISO 27701 Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) enables you to meet the highest standards of responsibility and transparency in the processing of personal information

Demonstrate next-level data protection with ISO 27701

Certification to ISO 27701 enables you to take your Information Security Management System (ISMS) to the next level. An extension of ISO 27001, and its sister guidance standard ISO 27002, ISO 27701 sets additional guidelines for how personally identifiable information (PII) should be managed and processed. Applicable to any organization that controls or processes personal data and has an ISO 27001 ISMS, an ISO 27701 PIMS enables businesses of all sizes and sectors to take a comprehensive, risk-based approach to data protection.

Target compliance with regulatory requirements

The controls and principles set out in ISO 27701 align with the principles laid out in recent data protection legislation around the world. Implementing an ISO 27701 Privacy Information Management System assists organizations in demonstrating their compliance with these and other regulatory regimes.

Build trust with internal and external stakeholders

ISO 27701 requires that an organization regularly produce documentation about how it handles personal data and protects against breaches. Transparency about your company’s data governance assures consumers, employees, investors, clients and governments that you take privacy seriously.
