Certified ISO 27701 PIMS Lead Implementer

Every organisation that processes personal data/PII (personally identifiable information) is subject to increasingly heavy regulation, with the introduction of data privacy laws such as the GDPR, DPA 2018 and CCPA.

Implementing an ISO 27701-compliant PIMS demonstrates your commitment to data privacy, and provides proof of the security measures you have implemented, should you suffer a data breach.

This fully accredited, practitioner-led course equips you to lead an ISO/IEC 27701 PIMS implementation project. It is delivered by an experienced data privacy trainer and consultant, who will use a combination of formal training, practical exercises and relevant case studies.
