BS 10012: Personal Information Management
Data protection. Specification for a personal information management system.
The BS 10012:2017 is a British Standard which was recently revised in 2017, as the previous 2009 version mainly focused on the 1998 Data Protection Act.
The 2017 revision provides the requirement to embed a personal information management system (PIMS), and specifications to manage and mitigate risks in relation to the privacy of personal information.

Key benefits of implementing this standard include:
- Clear identification and control of personally identifiable information within the organisation.
- Management of risks and threats in relation to personal information.
- Compliance against data protection laws and regulations.

- Competitive advantage by establishing a reputable management system.
- Win new business and clients due to increased trust.
