BS 10012 - Personal Information Management System
BS 10012 is a Personal Information Management System (PIMS). This standard can be integrated with existing management systems or be implemented on its own. The standard has been written in line with the requirements of the GDPR and specifically cross references the articles and recitals prescribed within the GDPR. For anyone who has read the GDPR and knows what a lengthy and daunting document it is, this standard is an excellent tool for approaching the requirements in a methodical way.
By implementing and obtaining certification to BS 10012 you will be able to demonstrate various measures and actions which you have taken in order to drive compliance with the regulatory and legislative requirements around Data Protection. Whilst this standard and no other standard can guarantee that a breach will not take place, it should certainly mitigate the likelihood and is an excellent response if asked by the Information Commissioners Office (ICO), existing clients and/or prospective clients what action have you taken to ensure GDPR compliance.
