A major step forward to privacy, comply with ISO/IEC 27701. ValueMentor ISO consultants can aid organizations to meet regulatory standards and handle privacy risks connected to Personally Identifiable Information.
ISO/IEC 27701:2019 is a service extension to ISO/IEC 27001. It is the first global privacy standard that envelops requisites, objectives and security controls related to the effective implementation of the Privacy Information Management System (PIMS). It also entails how organizations should effectively manage personal information and assist them in developing compliance with various other international privacy regulations.
ValueMentor ISO 27701 consulting services are undertaken by expert cyber security practitioners who have years of exposure in conducting security audits and implementing control measures in the data privacy and protection domain.
Choosing PIMS strategy
The initial step is to dig and choose the right approach towards developing a Privacy Information Management System (PIMS) that correlates with business objectives, compliance needs and other privacy necessities. PIMS development process relies heavily on the defined strategic goals and its privacy controls.
PIMS scope analysis
The scope feeds requirements to the PIMS that helps to produce an ideal framework to deploy, maintain and improve compliance with the data protection standard. Determining the PIMS scope is the pivot element for a healthy ISO 27701 implementation practice. External/internal issues, specific needs, organizational goals, risk acceptance levels and regulatory obligations fall under the scope.
PIMS gap & risk assessments
The phase involves conducting privacy impact assessments and security risk assessments to explore the deviation or gaps in your current security framework based on ISO 27701 compliance guidelines. Identified vulnerabilities and gaps are subject to remediation plans and actions. The phase converges the best security assessment tools, testing’s, methodologies, and expert resource capabilities.
Risk treatment plans
The risk treatment plan is a roadmap laid on the findings of detailed assessments and tests. It involves the development of patching guidelines and security control recommendations to mitigate the risks and converge the identified deviations. In fact, it is a prioritized roadmap that entails the vulnerabilities and action plans based on risks severity or impact.

Information security and privacy are both interlinked. While privacy relates to the rights that govern the use of personal information, information security concentrates on personal data protection. A robust system implementation should address security while meeting privacy requirements.
ISO/IEC 27701 (PIMS), the extension of ISO/IEC 27001 (ISMS), bridges the very gap between privacy and security of data. The integration could mold an efficient Information Security & Privacy Management System (ISPMS), capable of delivering the ultimate security requirements.
ISO/IEC 27701 and GDPR complement each other as most of the GDPR requirements stick to the same path. While GDPR compliance defines security principles and policies for efficient data handling, ISO 27701 ensures data confidentiality and integrity. Both assist organizations in effectively managing and reducing risks around personal information.
Organizations looking for ISO/IEC 27701 certification in coherence with GDPR compliance should initially acquire ISO/IEC 27001 certification, as ISO 27701 is an extension to the latter. If the organizations aren’t pre-certified to ISO 27001 standard, it clearly advises implementing both ISO 27001 and ISO 27701 together.
