Key Challenges Addressed
Many organisations rely on private, public and hybrid cloud services for storage space, computing power or services. In addition to the many benefits of using the cloud, there are risks such as unauthorised access to personal data that can result in data breaches or compromised integrity.
Achieving ISO 27018 certification requires that an organisation has established objectives and controls to guide PII protection measures. These measures are aligned with the privacy principles in ISO/IEC 29100 for a public cloud computing environment.
Ensuring this in practice is a complex process that requires specific skill sets, and experience with the certification process. This may be missing within many organisations and can create ongoing management costs as organisations recruit teams of people to start internal projects.

How it Works
Bridewell’s approach breaks down the complex aspects of the standard in a clear and concise delivery model, that makes the process as simple as possible for our clients. Depending on the specific level of support needed, Bridewell can provide:
Bridewell provides full end-to-end support and help, which enables organisations to obtain ISO 27018 certification and have all the operational activities completed by our consultants. Using our internally developed methodology, the engagement covers all areas of the framework.
Our partially managed service enables organisations to gain support as and when required to support existing personnel and stakeholders in their ISO 27018 certification endeavours. We often provide an ISO 27018 consultancy service delivering a subset of the controls that range from risk assessments, technical assessments or chairing senior management review meetings.
Bridewell can also conduct internal audits, which are a requirement of the standard but also allow an organisation to continually assess their security controls against the requirements of the standard.
Here are some commonly asked questions about ISO 27018. If you’d like to learn more speak to one of our team.
ISO/IEC 27018:2019 is a code of practice for the protection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in public clouds, acting as PII processors. ISO27018 is an internationally recognised standard which has been adopted by many organisations.
It confirms that an organisation has established objectives, controls and guidelines for implementing PII protection measures. These measures are aligned with the privacy principles in ISO/IEC 29100 for a public cloud computing environment.
It specifies guidelines based on ISO/IEC 27002, taking into consideration the regulatory requirements for the protection of PII. These requirements are applicable within the context of the information security risk environment of a provider of public cloud services.
Achieving ISO 27018 compliance helps organisations build a comprehensive and robust security program that takes into account the unique risks associated with storing and processing personal data in the cloud. Additionally, ISO 27018 provides guidance on how to effectively implement technical and organisational measures to protect personal data in the cloud, and how to ensure that these measures are appropriate to the risks posed.
HESA Drive Digital Transformation with Bridewell’s DPO as a Service
"We didn’t just want our DPO to come into HESA to run the data privacy team and maintain business as usual. We needed someone who could add strategic value to our processes and the major projects that are key to our current operations and future ambitions."
