ISO 27701:2019 is a data privacy extension to ISO 27001. It provides guidance to support compliance with GDPR and other data privacy requirements such as the Data Protection Act 2018. This course will give you the knowledge to implement the extension and enhance your existing Information Security Management System.

Course aims

This two-day course will give delegates a practical working knowledge of ISO 27701 as well as demonstrating how it can be implemented with your ISMS, potentially allowing for larger integrated management systems to be developed. 

The new ISO 27701 extension to ISO 27001 allows for greater clarity and assurance to the compliance of legislative and regulatory requirements due to the specific focus on subject areas. 

Organisations may see:

  • Greater business stability as information security risks are eliminated.
