New Security Standard ISO/IEC 27701

ISO/IEC 27701:2019 Security techniques — Extension to ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 for privacy information management 

This new standard is a privacy extension to the international information security management standards ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 for privacy information management.

ISO 27701 specifies the requirements for – and provides guidance for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving – a privacy information management system (PIMS).

ISO 27701 is based on the requirements, control objectives and controls of ISO 27001, and includes a set of privacy-specific requirements, controls and control objectives.

As numbers of security breaches affecting UK businesses continue to rise, both large and small organisations benefit from having procedures in place to secure their information assets.

The rise in social networking sites, smartphones and tablets has seen organisations increasingly placed at risk of security or data breaches so this extended ISO/IES 27701 standard will help to increase information security management within your business.
