The ISO 27001 certificate is recognised worldwide as a basis for data security. The guidelines and requirements from the standard enable organisations to regulate information security on a structural basis. That makes ISO 27001 certification a solid foundation for securing business information. Certification is of added value for every organization that has to deal with financial risks and risks in the area of privacy-sensitive information.
GDPR: more privacy awareness
From 25 May 2018 all EU countries will have one privacy law: the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This mainly concerns awareness in the field of privacy and dealing with confidential data. The GDPR prescribes, among other things, that organisations must carry out risk analyses on the personal data they hold, and conclude processor agreements. Companies and institutions must also appoint a dedicated data protection officer under certain circumstances.
With the GDPR organisations are encouraged to assume even more responsibility when it comes to privacy and the processing of personal data. The international standard ISO 27001 sets requirements and guidelines that organisations can use to structurally regulate privacy and data security processes.
