ISO 27701 Privacy Information Management System (PIMS)

ISO 27701 Privacy Information Management System (PIMS)

Nathan Labs


  • A Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) standard called ISO/IEC 27701, also known as PIMS ISO 27701, was created to assist organizations in adhering to privacy legislation all over the world. This standard plays a critical role in managing and safeguarding personally identifiable information (PII) in compliance with various data protection regulations.
  • Numerous countries have passed new data protection legislation in recent years that specify the conditions for safeguarding and handling personally identifiable information (PII). Organizations are now required to establish robust privacy frameworks to ensure compliance.
  • ISO 27701 privacy information management system is an expansion of ISO/IEC 27001, which focuses primarily on protecting personal data. In contrast, ISO/IEC 27001 establishes a standard for secure IT governance in the broadest sense, covering information security and cybersecurity practices.

Need for ISO 27701

  • To demonstrate to customers, outside organisations, and internal stakeholders that safeguards are in place to protect data and to comply with the GDPR and other privacy legislation, ISO 27701 is a powerful tool.
  • Since ISO 27701 is an extension of ISO 27001, organisations planning to adopt ISO 27701 certification must also finish ISO 27001, or both standards must be completed at once.

Benefits of ISO 27701 Certification

  • You can advance your Information Security Management System (ISMS) by becoming certified to ISO 27701.
  • As an expansion of ISO 27001 and its sister guidance standard ISO 27002, ISO 27701 establishes additional standards for the management and processing of personally identifiable information (PII).
  • An ISO 27701 PIMS enables companies of all sizes and sectors to take a thorough, risk-based approach to data security. It is applicable to any organisation that controls or processes personal data and has an ISO 27001 ISMS.
  • The principles and controls outlined in ISO 27701 are consistent with those outlined in modern data protection legislation worldwide.
  • By putting in place an ISO 27701 Privacy Information Management System, firms can more easily show that they are in compliance with these and other legal requirements.
  • An organisation must routinely publish documentation detailing how it manages personal data and guards against breaches in order to comply with ISO 27701. This will help the organisation to boost the trust with clients and stakeholders.
