Dahua obtains ISO/IEC 27701 certificate from BSI

Issue 1 2021 News

Dahua Technology has obtained an ISO/IEC 27701 certificate from British Standards Institution (BSI).

Formed in 1901, BSI was the world’s first National Standards Body. Representing UK interests at the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the European Standards Organizations (CEN, CENELEC and ETSI), BSI aims to help improve the quality and safety of products, services and systems by enabling the creation of standards and encouraging their use.

ISO/IEC 27701 is a privacy extension to the ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management and ISO/IEC 27002 Security Controls. As an international management system standard, it provides guidance on the protection of privacy, including how organisations should manage personal information, and assists in demonstrating compliance with privacy regulations around the world.

According to the certificate, Dahua Technology operates a Privacy Information Management System which complies with the requirements of ISO/IEC 27701:2019 for the registered scope that is planning, design and development of Dahua Technology’s security surveillance products and associated software platform (including the DSS and ICC series).

Liu Zhe, vice president at BSI China, said: “Dahua Technology is the first enterprise in the global security industry that has acquired an ISO/IEC 27701 certificate.”
