Thinking Beyond the Law: Does the ISO 27701 Privacy Framework Use the Same Principles that Are Found Within the ISO 29011 Framework?

The ISO 29100 privacy framework sets forth the following eleven core principles:

  1. Consent and choice

  2. Purpose legitimacy and specification

  3. Collection limitation

  4. Data minimization

  5. Use, retention and disclosure limitation

  6. Accuracy and quality

  7. Openness, transparency, and notice

  8. Individual participation and access

  9. Accountability

  10. Information security

  11. Privacy compliance

The ISO 27701 privacy framework is not explicitly organized using the above privacy principles; however, the controls that apply to controllers and processors, respectively, that are found within ISO 27701 can be mapped to each of the above principles. As a result, it is possible for an organization to adopt the privacy principles of ISO 29100 and utilize the 49 controls identified within ISO 27701 as a framework for implementing those principles.
