Course Description: Managing personal information in compliance with the evolving regulatory landscape is complex but cannot be ignored. The protection of an individual’s personal information is one of their fundamental human rights. Laws exist around the world to protect these rights in an environment where business and data related to personal lives are becoming increasingly globalized. Implementing the privacy controls should enable an organization to document evidence on of how it handles the processing of personal information. 

ISO/IEC 27701:2019 specifies the requirements and provides guidance for implementing a personal information management system (PIMS) in the form of an extension to ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 for privacy management, within the context of your organization.

By attending our five-day course, you will understand how to implement the principles of ISO/IEC 27701:2019 and how to assess the effectiveness of the PIMS controls in your organization. It will help you understand how the implementation of ISO/IEC 27701 provide the basis of an effective PIMS and provides guidance for personally identifiable information (PII) controllers and/or processors, processing PII.
