Privacy Information Management System
ISO/IEC 27701 Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) serves as a privacy extension to the internationally recognised management standard ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management Systems, which has already been widely adopted globally by types and sizes of organisations in meeting the regulatory requirements and manage privacy risks related to Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
ISO/IEC 27701 is designed for organisations worldwide that collect and process personally identifiable information (PII) and support organisations to comply with key privacy laws such as European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and local privacy law & regulations such as Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) in Singapore.
Why ISO/IEC 27701?
Organisations who have plans to obtain the DPTM Certification (Data Protection Trustmark) are encouraged to go for ISO 27701 certification as it helps the organisation appropriately address their information security and privacy risks, and could potentially reduce the time spent on preparing for the DPTM assessment. Organisations that were well prepared for the DPTM will have already completed a substantial amount of work required for ISO 27701.
