Steve has never stopped advancing himself and continues to broaden his knowledge of new standards as they come into existence.
Today, Steve is here to discuss ISO 27701 (Data Privacy), and why it’s so important to have so that you can prove you are GDPR compliant.
Since the new European Data Privacy Laws were introduced in May 2018 there have been over 150,000 personal data breaches within Europe, and the estimated total of GDPR fines total a little over 220 million euros.
Steve explains why GDPR is so important, how companies can avoid having data breaches, and what makes ISO 27701 different from previous standards.
- How ISO 27701 can help companies demonstrate compliance with the requirements of GDPR.
- The ways ISO 27701 is different from ISO 27001 and why you need both standards.
- Who you can share PII with while still maintaining GDPR compliance.
- The correlations ISO 27701 has with ISO 27002.
- The potential impact implementing ISO 27702 can have.
