Azure Certified for ISO/IEC 27701 Privacy Standard
We are pleased to share that Azure is the first major US cloud provider to achieve certification as a data processor for the new international standard ISO/IEC 27701 Privacy Information Management System (PIMS). The PIMS certification demonstrates that Azure provides a comprehensive set of management and operational controls that can help your organization demonstrate compliance with privacy laws and regulations.
Being the first major US cloud provider to achieve a PIMS certification is the latest in a series of privacy firsts for Azure, including being the first to achieve compliance with EU Model clauses. Microsoft was also the first major cloud provider to voluntarily extend the core data privacy rights included in the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) to customers around the world.
