ISO publishes privacy information management standard

The new ISO standards will help businesses meet such requirements, whatever jurisdiction they work in.

ISO/IEC 27701Security techniques — Extension to ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 for privacy information management  Requirements and guidelines, specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving a privacy-specific information security management system. In other words, a management system for protecting personal data (PIMS).

Formerly referred to as ISO/IEC 27552 during its development, it builds on ISO/IEC 27001Information Technology – Security techniques – Information security management systems – Requirements, providing the necessary extra requirements when it comes to privacy.
