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