ISO/IEC 27018:2019 is one of the critical components of cloud security – protecting data. There is sensitive data on the cloud, especially personally identifiable information (PII), company proprietary, and other sensitive data which is important to protect for organizations. ISO 27018 standard focuses on security controls that are built upon existing ISO/IEC 27002 security controls and provides new controls for personal data protection.
