ISO 27701 Lead Implementer Training Course Overview

During this training, delegates will learn about information system audit to add reliability, security, and accuracy to the information systems. They will also learn how to manage and use data while adhering to different data privacy regimes. This course will be delivered by our highly skilled instructor, who has years of experience teaching ISO courses and making delegates comprehend security techniques.

Course Objectives

  • To maintain conformance with data privacy regimes requirements

  • To manage information privacy using ISO 27701 standard guidelines
  • To implement either separately or as a combined management system
  • To interview employees to ensure that they understand processes and policies
  • To conduct tests to see how the management system works after implementation

After completing this training, delegates will be able to implement and manage PIMS according to the guidance of the ISO 27701 standard and required changes to extend Information Security Management System (ISMS). They will also be able to apply their skills as PII controllers and PII processors holding responsibility and accountability for PII processing.
