The ISO 27701 readiness assessment

ISO/IEC 27701 is new the international “gold standard” for privacy management and a companion standard for its similarly named partner – the famous ISO 27001 for information security.

ISO 27701 enables organisations to demonstrate compliance with all applicable privacy regulations, including the GDPR and the 2018 Data Protection Act.

Our ISO/IEC 27701 gap analysis will get your organisation ready for its certification assessment with our 4-stage ISO 27701 audit process.

1. ISO/IEC 27701 gap analysis: 

Our ISO 27701 assessment will start by conducting a gap analysis which will highlight the areas your organisation will either need to change or update in order to achieve certification success.

2. ISO 27701 readiness roadmap: Following our ISO 27701 gap analysis, we can generate a straightforward action plan that details every step of what needs to happen in order to get your organisation to where it needs to be.

You can choose to employ DQM GRC’s support for any stage of the ISO 27701 compliance roadmap, or to use your own resources instead.

3. ISO 27701 simulated assessment: At an agreed date, we’ll then conduct an ISO 27701 assessment which aligns with the official certification exercise.

This will give you a strong indication of whether your organisation is ready for the real ISO 27701 assessment from a certified body, or if there are any flags that could potentially stop your organisation from achieving the certification.

4. ISO 27701 final preparation: If required, we can then work with you to modify any issues raised during your assessment and prepare your organisation for its ISO 27701 certification visit.
