Before explaining each of these courses, it is quite important that we understand what ISO stands for and what ISO/IEC 27701 is in general.

What is ISO/IEC 27701?

ISO certifications are a set of international standards that individuals and organisations certify to and associate themselves with the same; as these certifications are not just recognised globally, but also shows that the organisation maintains a level of quality standards. They are developed and published by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization).

In the age of digitalisation, we have seen and are experiencing at this moment, a sudden shift and concern regarding the protection of the individuals’ data privacy rights; we can also see that so many countries have already implemented their own data protection and privacy laws, some countries follow a federal law on data protection, others have state-wise data protection laws in force. But after all, what is the ISO/IEC 27701 all about?

The ISO/IEC 27701 was published in August 2019, with an aim to provide organisations, as well as businesses, who are seeking to comply with different data protection and privacy laws, to give such businesses and organisations an international approach towards privacy as a component of information security.

ISO/IEC 27701, is more or less a framework for data protection, and helps organisations and businesses in developing policies and procedures in order to ensure complete compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other international data protection and privacy laws. It will also give you a better understanding about how to maintain, implement and improve the Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) as it is based on ISO/IEC 27701.
