What is ISO 27701?

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an independent, nongovernmental organization that publishes standards in technical and nontechnical fields. The ISO/IEC 27000-series of standards is published jointly by ISO and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and is a set of information security standards that when combined form a framework for information security management.

ISO/IEC 27701:2019 is a framework for the creation and management of Privacy Information Management Systems (PIMS), including the handling of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). The standard builds on and extends the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002, with additional controls and guidance for protecting data privacy.
