At Cornerstone, we’re on a journey to continuously demonstrate our commitment to data privacy and people protection. Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been awarded the ISO 27701 certification for our Privacy Information Management System. Considered to be the first globally recognised privacy certification, and aligned with GDPR, ISO 27701 is an extension of the gold standard in security, ISO 27001. It requires organisations to adhere to a structured framework of information security and personal data protection requirements and outlines practical guidance for managing privacy programs.
“With this new certification, we are bringing the power of people protection to all of our clients across the globe,” explained José Alberto Rodríguez Ruiz, Global Data Protection Officer at Cornerstone. “We are focused on offering all organisations we work with the reassurance for how we handle their data, providing compliance reporting and career protection. Ultimately, this enables our clients to also gain the trust of their employees.”
Achieving ISO 27701 was a top priority for Cornerstone after it was enacted last fall, and it was performed in a short amount of time.
“We believe this certification marks a key milestone for both us and data privacy in general,” said Jose. “It’s about more than protecting data: we protect the data to protect the people”
