On 6th August the ISO (International Organisation for Standardization) announced what it calls the first international standard for tackling privacy information management.

ISO27701 “security techniques for privacy information management” is an extension of the existing ISO27001 (information security) and ISO27002 (information security controls) established standards.

Dr Andreas Wolf, Chair of the ISO/IEC technical committee that developed the standard, said:

“ISO/IEC 27701 defines processes and provides guidance for protecting PII on an ongoing, ever evolving basis. Because being a management system, it defines processes for continuous improvement on data protection, particularly important in a world where technology doesn’t stand still.”

You can find out more about the standard on the ISO website here.
