ISO/IEC 27018 is applicable to the processing of PII obtained from a customer for the purposes determined by the customer under its contract with the cloud service provider.

By adopting ISO/IEC 27018, an organization can :

  • Use it as a guideline to facilitate the compliance with the relevant data protection requirements;
  • Win the confidence of customers to entrust their data in the cloud, and thus broaden their customer base; and
  • Assist public cloud service provider, operating in a multinational market, in coping with various national data protection standards and performing complex assessments in each jurisdiction
  • Form a basis to enable the secure exchange of information and to protect data privacy, in particular relating to sensitive information;
  • Manage and lower risk exposure, hence less chance of incidents being realized and in turn reducing time and money spent on responding to incidents;
  • Strengthen the internal organization and improve the security structure of the business, such as to clearly define responsibilities and duties related to information security;
  • Reduce the resources needed for completing security-related information in bidding for contracts, as well as on-going submission after the contracts awarded, as required by clients

  • Increasing the overall security maturity of your business.
  • Assuring customers and regulators that the business takes cyber security risks seriously.
  • Protecting and enhancing your brand reputation.
  • Satisfying audit requirements by internal teams, customers and or regulators.
  • Possibly realising financial savings in the long run (reduce expenditure on technology incidents, regulatory fines and non-compliance).
