Duff & Phelps Achieves Privacy Protection Certification ISO/IEC 27701

Latest Certification in the ISO 27000 Series Demonstrates Commitment to Highest Standards of Privacy and Information Security

New York –  Duff & Phelps, the world’s premier provider of governance, risk and transparency solutions, today announced that it has successfully achieved ISO/IEC 27701, the most widely recognized and internationally accepted privacy information and security standard. This certification is the latest addition to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification, with prior certifications including ISO/IEC 27001. Duff & Phelps is among the first companies globally to earn this certification with accreditation.

The ISO 27701 is the first certifiable international privacy standard. It provides a framework for privacy information management systems to help companies fine-tune their data privacy practices and keep pace with the changing privacy threat and regulatory landscape. In addition, it provides guidance for organizations to implement systems to support compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and other data privacy requirements. 

Wayne Peterson, Chief Information Security Officer at Duff & Phelps, stated, “Becoming ISO 27701 certified demonstrates our ongoing commitment to security and privacy standards. It complements our ISO 27001 data security compliance and ensures our employees, and our clients and their employees, the highest level of personal information protection.”

Aimee Sabolyk, Chief Privacy Officer at Duff & Phelps, added, “By implementing a privacy program and processes in line with the standards of ISO 27701, we are underscoring our commitment to delivering the best solutions possible—with the utmost importance being placed on the privacy of our firm and clients' data.”
