Embracing ISO 27701 Certification

HMD is proud to announce that it has achieved ISO 27701 certification, demonstrating its commitment to maintaining the highest standards in data privacy management. This achievement underlines HMD’s core values, placing data privacy at the forefront of its operations.

ISO 27701 is an international standard that provides a framework for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continuously improving a Privacy Information Management System (“PIMS”). This certification validates HMD's dedication to protecting the personal data it handles, and its compliance with global data protection regulations.

By obtaining ISO 27701 certification, HMD has demonstrated its ability to effectively manage privacy risks, implement privacy controls, and ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of personal data. This achievement highlights HMD's commitment to safeguarding the privacy rights of its valued customers, partners, and employees.

ISO 27701 is an extension of the ISO 27001 certification received by HMD already in 2022 for its implementation of robust information security practices. ISO 27001 is a well-established standard for Information Management Systems (ISMS) focusing on the security of information assets.

"We are thrilled to have achieved ISO 27701 certification. This certification reflects our continuous commitment to ensuring the privacy and security of personal data. It reinforces our dedication to maintaining the trust of our stakeholders and strengthens our position as a leader in data protection."

— Jari Koljonen, Data Protection Officer, at HMD says

ISO 27701 certification is a testament to HMD's comprehensive approach to data privacy management. It demonstrates the company's adherence to best practices, including conducting regular privacy impact assessments, implementing privacy-by-design principles, and maintaining robust data protection policies and procedures.

With its ISO 27701 certified PIMS, HMD remains at the forefront of data privacy, continuously adapting to evolving regulatory requirements and industry standards. This certification further reinforces HMD's commitment to maintaining a culture of privacy and data protection excellence.
