You have the option for your BSI Client Manager to review your organization’s readiness for the formal assessment with a BSI gap assessment.
Here we check if the necessary ISO/IEC 27701 processes and controls have been developed in your organization. We share the details of our findings with you so that if we find gaps, you can close them.
2. Formal assessment
Next, if all the requirements are in place, we’ll begin the formal certification assessment visits.
These are delivered over two stages, where we assess the implementation of your privacy information management system. We’ll check the procedures and controls within your organization to make sure that they are working effectively as required for certification of ISO/IEC 27701.
And to help make this process as seamless as possible, we give you access to our BSI Connect Portal, where you can view visit dates, download reports and complete any actions related to your certification assessments.
3. Certification and beyond
When you achieve certification, you’ll receive your BSI ISO/IEC 27701 certificate which is valid for three years.
Your BSI Client Manager will visit you regularly to make sure your system doesn’t just remain compliant, but it continually improves and adds value to your organization.
And don’t forget to celebrate and promote your success. You can download and use the BSI Assurance Mark to show you are certified.
