On November 19 local time, Huawei Mobile Services won the world’s first batch of ISO/IEC 27701 certification issued by the British Standards Institution at the Annual Conference on European Data Protection 2019 in Brussels, Belgium, marking that Huawei Mobile Services has received great recognition from the industry for its world leading capacity in personal data protection and information security control.
In August 2019, ISO and IEC officially released ISO/IEC 27701:2019 privacy information management system, an extension to ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 for privacy information management.
This document provides private companies, government entities, not-for-profit organizations and other social organizations with a complete set of methods for personal data processing and a framework for privacy information management from multiple dimensions as organization governance, legal compliance, process specification, information technology, supervision and audit. It is also the world’s most authoritative, strictest, most widely accepted and applied PIMS to date.
It is the common concern in the industry that ISO/IEC 27701:2019 may become a de facto standard for organizations in personal data protection, and may be used for proving the compliance with global privacy regulations including GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
Provided by Huawei to its end users, Huawei Mobile Services is a kind of digital life service which involves diverse scenarios including smart household, sports & health, mobile office, smart travel, and entertainment. While earnestly serving users, Huawei Mobile Services has always adhered to its core value of “privacy is the fundamental right of users” following its tenet of privacy protection.

Huawei Mobile Services has won successive awards in security certification, evidenced by ISO/IEC27001 and CSA Star security certification in 2015, and ISO /IEC 27018 privacy standard certification in October 2019. This time, Huawei becomes the first batch of cloud service providers winning ISO/IEC 27701:2019 certification, vividly proving that Huawei Mobile Services has gained great recognition from international authoritative organizations thanks to its outstanding performance in user privacy protection.
With its design, R&D, operation, maintenance and other links continuously optimized, Huawei Mobile Services has formed mature personal information protection system and reached the world leading level in privacy management, transparency, and legal compliance of personal information.
