How an effective ISO 27001 can help you achieve GDPR?


ISO 27001:2013 is Information Security Management System (ISMS). This is an international standard which has framework of policies and procedures that includes all technical, physical, legal and administrative controls involved in an organisation’s information risk management processes.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is meant for protection of all the European citizen’s personal data. It is a Regulation in European Union Law on Data Protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union.


ISO 27001:2013 has 7 strategic clauses 14 generic clauses and 114 controls which covers end to end information security of organisations

GDPR consists of 99 articles, which is further grouped into 11 chapters and an additional 171 recitals with explanatory remarks.

The basis of both ISMS and GDPR is integrity, availability and confidentiality.

How ISO 27001 helps

If we look at Article 32(Security in processing) of the GDPR there requirements are similar as of ISO 27001:2013:

  1. the encryption and pseudonymisation of personal data;
  2. the ability to ensure the ongoing integrity, confidentiality, availability and resilience of processing services and systems;
  3. the access to personal data and the ability to restore the availability in a timely manner in the event of a technical or physical incident;
  4. a process for regularly assessing, testing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing.

Its requirements are similar in many places to the ISMS, but whereas the Regulation only occasionally suggests specific practices (such as encryption), ISO 27001 lays out clearly what organisations need to do to remain secure.

Article 32 also states a mandatory requirement that organisations should address risks that could lead to the “accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to personal data”.

An effective ISMS meets all these requirements.

GDPR constitutes the protection of personal data of employees, customers and others. In case organizations fail to comply with this regulation, they will be subject to heavy fines and damaged reputation.
