Need help with ISO 27701 certification? You have come to the right place!

In August 2019, SAI Global published ISO/IEC 27701 as an extension to ISO/IEC 27701 and ISO/IEC 27002. The ISO/IEC 27001 is a new standard for privacy management within an organisation. It details specific requirements and guidance for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving a Privacy Information Management System (PIMS).

At Symmetry Compliance, we can help you at every step of your ISO 27701 certification journey.

Understanding ISO 27701 requirements

  • ISO 27701 PIMS requirements for PII controllers and PII processors: ISO 27701 details distinct sets of requirements where your organisation is a PII/data controller and/or a PII/data processor. We will help you understand your organisation’s PII role and what ISO 27701 requirements are relevant.
  • ISO 27701 and existing ISO standards: ISO 27701 is an extension of ISO 27001 and ISO 27002 and also shares a number of common requirements of other ISO standards including ISO 29100, 27018, ISO 29151 and more. We will help you understand the similarities and help you harness and refine your existing ISO certifications to make the ISO 27701 journey easier and more beneficial.
