Practical steps to conducting an ISO 27701 gap analysis  

Presenter: Alice Turley, GDPR Consultant, IT Governance Europe

ISO 27701 offers a best-practice approach to help organizations implement privacy security controls, expanding on ISO 27001’s clauses and Annex A controls that relate specifically to data privacy, as well as providing two additional sets of controls specific to data controllers and data processors.

By conducting an ISO 27701 gap analysis, you can prioritize work areas to achieve compliance with the Standard and implement a PIMS (privacy information management system).

  • The mandatory documentation to achieve ISO 27701 compliance

Practical implications of the Schrems II ruling


  • Camilla Winlo, Director of Consulting Services, DQM GRC
  • Preston Bukaty, GDPR Consultant, IT Governance USA

It also ruled that EU SCCs (standard contractual clauses), also known as model clauses, are valid in principle but not always in practice, depending on the circumstances of those data transfers. This also causes problems for EU-based organizations that intend to transfer personal data to and from the U.S.
