BS 10012:2017 - Personal information management


Protecting personal information has never been so important.
Legal requirements such as the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) are now enshrined in law and all organisations are required to demonstrate that they take managing privacy seriously by complying. 

No matter what size your business is or what type of personal information you process, BS 10012:2017 
can help you to manage risks to the privacy of personal data. The team at CyberWhite will guide you through implementing the necessary policies, procedures and controls to ensure compliance with data protection legislation.


BS 10012:2017 is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act model for continuous quality control and improvement.

The standard is therefore consistent with other management systems endorsed by ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation).

This enables an integrated implementation and interoperation of a Personal Information Management System (PIMS) with systems such as an Information Security Management System (ISMS) as recommended for security by the ISO 27000 series of standards.


BS 10012:2107 provides a best practice framework for a personal information management system and it is completely aligned to the principles of the EU GDPR. It outlines the core requirements all organisations need to consider when collecting, storing, processing, retaining or disposing of personal records relating to individuals. It is very easily integrated with other popular management system standards and as a result, brings significant benefits to companies of all sizes, including:

  Helps to identify and manage risks to personal information

  Supports regulatory compliance with data protection legislation

  Inspires client trust

  Protects the organisational reputation

  Benchmarks your own personal information management practices with recognised best practice
