ISO/IEC 27001, a globally recognized information security management system (ISMS) standard, offers a methodical way to handle sensitive data. To ensure the privacy, availability, and integrity of data, it includes an extensive set of controls and best practices. ISO/IEC 27701, an extension of ISO/IEC 27001, centers on privacy information management. It customizes the ISMS to address privacy concerns, aligning with regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
SOC 2, developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), is another critical standard, especially for technology and cloud computing entities. It provides a comprehensive framework for assessing and communicating a service organization's controls and focuses on data privacy, security, availability, and processing integrity.
ISO/IEC 27701 is an extension of ISO/IEC 27001 and primarily focuses on privacy information management. ISO/IEC 27701 customizes the ISMS to incorporate particular measures for controlling privacy threats, providing organizations with a framework to demonstrate their commitment to protecting personal data and compliance with data privacy laws.
ISO/IEC 27001 compliance involves implementing an ISMS, conducting regular risk assessments, establishing security controls, and documenting an improvement process. SOC 2 compliance prioritizes privacy, confidentiality, processing integrity, availability, and security. To meet these requirements, organizations must have policies and procedures in place and undergo regular assessments by third-party auditors.
Yes, organizations can obtain certification for ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27701 by undergoing a rigorous audit procedure run by recognized certification bodies. Although SOC 2 compliance is also evaluated through audits, no certification is given. Instead, organizations can receive a SOC 2 report outlining their compliance with the required standards.
