Cyber Essentials Gap Analysis

GDPR Gap Analysis and ISO27701

As the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has become law, many organizations have had to scramble to make sure they’re compliant. One of the key steps many companies have taken to ensure their GDPR compliance is to adopt International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 27701 to manage GDPR compliance. ISO 27701 is the international standard for implementing a privacy information management system (PIMS). It provides a comprehensive set of organizational requirements and best practices for implementing technical and organizational controls designed to help address GDPR compliance.

With specific guidelines and criteria for administrator authorization and access privileges, data protection, data security, and more, ISO 27701 is a robust tool for building a GDPR-compliant business. But putting ISO 27701 into practice is not enough to ensure GDPR compliance. That’s why it’s essential to conduct a comprehensive gap analysis to identify the potential gaps between your existing GDPR processes and the standards introduced by ISO 27701.

This analysis will allow you to identify and prioritize any existing processes that need to be changed or improved in order to ensure compliance. The benefits of conducting a gap analysis are numerous. First and foremost, it will help you to identify any areas that need additional resources or modifications in order to bring your organization into compliance with GDPR provisions. This allows you to target these areas and provide the resources necessary for a comprehensive solution. Additionally, by conducting a gap analysis, you can proactively avoid any GDPR breaches that may otherwise occur due to inadequate processes.

Finally, a gap analysis of ISO 27701 and GDPR is a great way to ensure your company has long-term GDPR compliance. Once the gaps have been identified, you can then make sure that any new processes and procedures comply with both GDPR and ISO 27701 standards. This will help guarantee that your organization remains compliant and up to date with the latest GDPR guidelines for the foreseeable future. In sum, the adoption of ISO 27701 is an essential part of ensuring GDPR compliance. It’s important to remember, however, that implementing ISO 27701 is only the first step. To ensure true compliance, it’s also necessary to conduct a gap analysis to identify any potential areas of non-compliance and areas where resources need to be allocated to ensure compliance. With this in mind, businesses can make sure that their GDPR compliance initiatives are proactive and effective.
