Our approach to achieving BSI certification involved team collaboration with Information Security, Global Data Privacy, and Information Security leadership as well as the creation of a Privacy information Management System (PIMS) Committee.
We restructured our security framework and controls to meet Information Security Management System (ISMS) standards and enhanced our information security posture with a 700+-person-strong Information Security organization.
We also conducted benchmark assessments against leading industry controls, and in March 2020 attained certification to ISO 27701 across Enterprise and Client Service Business by British Standards Institute (BSI). ISO 27701 was established to protect personally identifiable information and uphold international data privacy regulations.
In doing this, we are the first global organization to be ISO 27701 certified by BSI globally across both Enterprise and Client Service Business further validating Accenture’s processes and security controls.
