What is ISO 27701 certification?

ISO 27701 certification has been introduced to help organisations to protect and manage the control and processing of personal information. In conjunction with ISO 27001, ISO 27701 can be applied to companies of all sizes, in any sector and in any country. 

Achieving certification to ISO 27701 provides independent assurance to your existing and potential customers that you have the appropriate data protection controls in place. Staff and regulatory bodies will also know that you are an organisation that meets the highest standards of personal information management, which can also give you a vital edge over your competitors.

Frequently asked questions

How long does it take to implement an ISO 27701-compliant Privacy Information Management System (PIMS)?

The time it takes to implement an ISO 27701-compliant PIMS can vary depending on the size and complexity of your organisation, but it typically takes between 4 to 6 months.

We already have high standards of data privacy, why do we need ISO 27701 certification?

ISO 27701 provides a framework for protecting and managing the control and processing of personal information. For organisations with existing high standards of information security, the effort required to achieve ISO 27701 may be relatively low and the benefits of having a systematic, benchmarked approach to managing personal information will enhance protection from Cyber threats, meet regulatory compliance requirements, and possibly most significantly of all helps build customer trust by demonstrating a commitment to data security.

Can Teamwork IMS guarantee successful certification?

We have a 100% success rate guiding our clients through ISO 27701 certification, however, it’s important to note that the certification that we support you through is carried by an entirely independent, accredited certification body and by its nature is not something we can ever guarantee. We believe this gives you a level of compliance that is second to none.

How do you stay up to date with the latest ISO standards and best practices?

We stay up to date with the latest ISO standards and best practices by maintaining active involvement in industry associations and participating in ongoing training and education programs. We also regularly review updates and revisions to the standard to ensure our clients are always receiving the most current guidance and advice.

How do you help us prepare for ISO 27701 certification?

We can help you at every step of the way, firstly by conducting a gap analysis of your current information management practices, then by developing a customised implementation plan, providing training and support to your staff, and finally by helping you navigate the certification process.

We practice what we preach

For a consultancy team who routinely manage compliance programs for other organisations, progressing through our own certification process is always a valuable reminder of how the experience feels and we think that this contributes towards our efficient but sympathetic approach to consulting for others.
