Complimentary Webinar: Insights on ISO 27701:2019 Privacy Information Management System – An Extension to ISO 27001


Date: 27th May 2020, Wednesday
Time: 2.30 – 3.30pm MYT
Language: English

In today’s increasingly interconnected and digitalised world, more organisations are embracing new technologies to improve business processes and provide personalised customer experiences to generate higher profits. This has led to a proliferation of collection, use and transfer of personal data globally, raising concern among consumers that the collected data may be repurposed. 

As such, privacy regulations such as the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA), are introduced by the governments to ensure responsible use of data & accountability for personally identifiable information (PII) to protect consumers.

ABOUT ISO 27701:2019

ISO 27701 Privacy Information Management System (PIMS), a privacy extension to ISO 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS), can support organisations in meeting the regulatory requirements and manage privacy risks related to Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

importance of ISO 27701:2019

Lawmakers and regulators worldwide have been introducing new laws governing the use of PII. This includes the roll out of GDPR where many organisations face challenges in becoming GDPR compliant. It is even more challenging for businesses that have to comply with regulations in multiple jurisdictions. The ISO 27701:2019 standard will provide them with a harmonised framework to decide, plan, implement, and document its approach to achieve compliance with data privacy regulations across countries.

Knowledge sharing through complimentary webinar
