How secure are your organisation’s data and systems? Given the increasing number of cyber threats circulating today, it’s essential that you strengthen your security posture to more effectively guard against ransomware, data breaches, and other types of unwanted events.
Information security standards and best practices are all headed toward the same goal: solid and scalable systems that protect IT assets and privacy. The GDPR require you to implement measures to ensure a level of personal data security that’s “appropriate”, taking into account the risks presented by the data processing activities you are involved in.
An important step that will lead to the growing importance of privacy on an international level is about to take place this year. The International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) will adopt ISO 31700 on privacy by design, a new worldwide privacy standard for consumer goods and services. The new standard provides guidelines for organisations to take into account a consumer’s privacy throughout the design, development and the rest of the product lifecycle.
There is no question then that an organisation with ISO 27001 or both ISO 27001/27701 certifications certainly has a distinct advantage when complying with the GDPR. The drawback is that many ISO 27001/27701 implementation projects take time, money, blood, sweat and tears. As with many aspects of GDPR compliance, it is ultimately a decision as to whether the long-term benefits can justify the sometimes arduous process of getting the certification based on the context and data processed by the organisation.
