The Information Security Institute code-of-conduct (certification mechanism) provides a platform for data controllers and processors to ensure a structured and efficient means for GDPR compliance.

  • These costs can be offset by reducing audit costs and automation
  • Certification can serve as marketing tools, allowing data subjects to choose controllers signalling GDRP compliance
  • They also will likely play a significant role in facilitating cross-border data transfers.

The Information Security Institute Certification mechanisms can create business opportunities for new third-party administrators and programs as effective means for determining binding promises by controllers and processors
