ISO 27001 & the GDPR: Identifying Overlap and Streamlining Efforts

Together, security and privacy teams share a common goal: Protect the organization from reputational damage, lawsuits, and regulatory trouble. On one hand, ISO 27001 focuses on the assessment of risks and protection of the organization. On the other, the GDPR aims to assess and protect the rights and freedoms of individuals. With a joint goal in mind, it is crucial that security and privacy teams work together to develop a common language that produces greater productivity and takes advantage of collective efforts. In this session, OneTrust will present findings from research conducted in cooperation with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), sharing how ISO 27001 and the GDPR overlap, as well as how security and privacy teams can work together to become more effective.

What you will take away from this session

  • Map the most common security operations standard, ISO 27001 to the world’s most influential piece of privacy legislation, the GDPR
  • Identify how much work toward GDPR compliance that security teams have likely already done
  • Outline six main areas of common ground that should help every organization align their security and privacy operations
  • Develop a framework to reduce the risk of a damaging incident while increasing productivity and customer trust
