Every organization processes Personally Identifiable Information (PII). ISO 27701 security techniques is an extension to ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 and it specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving a Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) within the context of the organization, and it integrates with the Information Security Management System (ISMS).
The benefits of ISO 27701 are that it focuses on both the requirements of the controllers and the processors with defined controls in ISO 27701. The standard will lesson workloads by reducing the need for multiple certifications, and it complies with global privacy laws and therefore it will generate more trust between the organisation and its interested parties.
Certified organisations can promote themselves as certificate holders in their promotional materials and can include the URS certification logo free of charge.
