ISO 27018 Services

ISO 27018, also known as ISO/IEC 27018 Code of Practice for Protection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in Public Clouds Acting as PII Processors, is a standard designed for cloud computing organizations. The guidance within ISO 27018 has controls designed specifically for Cloud Service Providers who handle personally identifiable information.

This standard creates an additional level of customer confidence, specifically when working with organizations who handle sensitive information, by providing the practical application of minimum protection standards that should be implemented, to maximize client and end-user assurance.

ISO 27018 augments existing ISO 27002 controls to provide detailed guidance for how to approach cloud privacy and the security of personal information.
