ISO/IEC 27001



ISO/IEC 27701

On November 28, 2019 it became known that BSI, the company on business improvement, started the global scheme of certification on compliance to requirements of ISO/IEC 27701 to help the organizations to create, implement and support a management system for confidential information.

The first organizations certified by BSI according to this standard: Accenture plc, Alibaba Cloud Computing Ltd., Singapore E-Commerce Private Limited., Beijing Microlive Vision Technology Co., Ltd, Blackhawk Network Inc., Huawei Software Technologies Co., Ltd Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) Huawei Cloud, Lotte Duty Free, PwC Mauritius, and Ribose Group Inc.

The organizations are faced by a double task — to collect and process the growing amount of data, providing at the same time compliance to the new, constantly extending list of rules about confidentiality and to the legislation drafted around the world. The scheme of certification is based on the ISO/IEC 27701:2019 standard of the Measure and security protection — the ISO/IEC 27001 Expansion. The standard published in August provides to the organizations the guide to operational control for ensuring compliance to requirements about confidentiality of data, such as General provisions of the EU on data protection (GDPR), the Californian law on protection of private life of consumers (CCPA) and General law on data protection of Brazil (LGPD). The standard is expansion of a system of management by information security of ISO/IEC 27001.

For successful passing of certification on compliance to requirements of the standard, the organization it is necessary to pass the independent assessment including the careful audit of the production site covering all requirements of ISO/IEC 27701. The organization conforming to requirements of this standard should have documentary confirmation of how it processes personally identified information (PII). Such confirmation can also promote simplification of achievement of arrangements between business partners when information processing of personal character is relevant. One of criteria of passing of certification is existence of the certificate of conformity and the operating information security management system of ISO/IEC 27001.

For maintenance of sustainable development of the organization should provide personal data protection to which they get access, collect, store, process and use. It becomes harder and harder task, considering the growing amount of data which the organizations, and constantly developing requirements of the world legislation on confidentiality of personal data should manage. Passing of certification on compliance to this standard helps to create trust and transparency of the relations between partners. Having the certificate, the organization can show the conscientious attitude and pro-active approach to data protection. We are glad to provide the organizations which underwent certification within our global program for the first followers of this standard that is a great achievement,
