About ISO 27018
ISO 27018 is a code of practice for protecting personal data in the cloud developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It provides guidelines and best practices for cloud service providers (CSPs) on protecting the privacy of individuals whose personal data is being processed in the cloud.
The standard covers a range of issues related to the processing of personal data in the cloud, including:
- The role of the cloud service provider in protecting personal data
- Measures for protecting personal data in the cloud
- Transparency and accountability in the processing of personal data
- Individual rights with respect to personal data
ISO 27018 is particularly relevant for organizations that use cloud services to process personal data, such as customer information, financial data, and health records. It is also suitable for cloud service providers themselves, as it provides a framework for ensuring that they are following best practices and meeting the needs of their customers.
Does your company need it?
ISO 27018 applies to all organizations that process personal data in the cloud. This includes cloud service providers, data controllers, and data processors processing personal data within a cloud computing environment. It is especially relevant for healthcare, finance, and government organizations, where personal data protection is critical.
