What is ISO/IEC 27701:2019?
The ISO 27701 certification is a newly published privacy extension standard granted to organizations who meet the global standard for effective information security. It provides additional guidance for compliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other crucial data privacy requirements.
After receiving a recommendation from the ISO/IEC accreditation body, the LMS365 product and company has now been declared ISO 27701 certified for its outstanding management of personal information and private data protection. This ISO 27701 privacy extension enables us to take our information security management system (ISMS) to the next level, with expanded guidelines on how personally identifiable information (PII) should be managed and protected.
EFI's certification and commitments
At EFI, we have received the ISO/IEC 27701 certification for operating a PIMS that complies with the requirements of ISO/IEC 27701 for the following scope:

With our PIMS, we practice an ongoing commitment to protect the confidentiality and integrity of personal data, including that of our customers, external partners, and employees.
We also practice an ongoing commitment to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all the physical and digital information assets throughout EFI. This is done to preserve the competitive edge, cash flow, profitability, legal, regulatory & contractual compliance, and the commercial image of EFI.
Information and information security requirements will continue to be aligned with these goals of EFI. We are audited against the standard every year by an independent third party and will review the PIMS policy at least annually to respond to any changes in the risk assessment or risk treatment requirements.
