ISO 27701: 2019: PIMS: International Certification to protect Personal Identifiable Information (PII)

CAA Default

Over the past two years the PII environment has changed exponentially. With the introduction of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from the European Union and its enforcement beginning on May 2018, the importance of data protection collected from organizations for a variety of reasons is becoming the utmost objective of each organization and involved individuals.

Without a doubt, the business growth in the modern world drives up the amount of collected personal data from organizations for different purposes. As a result, there is a need for organizations to develop an enhanced system to manage the collection of data, based on the premises of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

But, little did we know that the International Standards Organisation (ISO) has identify this as well as an International and Global Risk. With the provisioning of Information Security (ISO 27001), we have seen the constant growth in the drive to protect personal information since 2015. The ISO has developed and approved the ISO 27701: 2019: Personal Information Management System (PIMS), to protect the much needed Personal Identifiable Information (PII). (See the video)
