ISO 27701:

The Business Case for ISO 27701 Implementation

ISO 27701: The Business Case for ISO 27701 Implementation


Privacy is a rapidly growing concern for businesses of all sizes. Whether they’re facing questions from customers, business partners, or regulators, businesses must be able to adequately answer questions regarding the privacy of personal data.

While privacy regulation has proliferated, no certification has existed to date in the marketplace relative to a company’s privacy posture.

The recent adoption of ISO 27701 offers an opportunity for businesses to demonstrate that they take privacy seriously by obtaining a certification over their data privacy programs.

This Whitepaper Series Includes:

  • Part 1: An overview of the essential elements of the ISO 27701 Framework
  • Part 2: A business case for why organizations should consider ISO 27701 certification
    (This Whitepaper)
  • Part 3: A review of the ISO 27701 certification process from start to finish
