ISO/IEC 27701 vs GDPR: What you need to know

Date: January 29th, 3:00 PM CET
Length: 60 minutes

As a follow-up on the previous session (4th of December), we run through the GDPR part of the ISO/IEC 27701 standard which has been published in August 2019.

We’ll take it from another angle and use the ISO/IEC 27701 as a guide to complete the checklist for the GDPR implementation.

Also, with the help of the (new) PECB ISO/IEC 27701 lead auditor course, we’ll have an auditor’s look at the ISO certification and compliance. It’s important to see how it works, to make sure your GDPR implementation can withstand the increasing demand for maturity from customers, subjects and data protection authorities that start to exercise their rights.

The ISO/IEC 27701 contains important requirements and implementation guidance for implementing a PIMS (Privacy Information Management System), which will set the baseline for the future of privacy and data protection.

The webinar will cover:

  • The GDPR view of the ISO/IEC 27701
  • Mapping the GDPR to-do and the ISO27701 to-do list.
  • The ISO/IEC 27701 auditor mindset
  • Compliance AND/OR/XOR solid data protection?
  • Status of GDPR certification
