Re: ISO 27001
Dr.T: It's also a component referenced in the NIST Cybersecurity Framework at various layers.

The problem, of course, is that so few people know what it actually, er, says...because of its proprietary nature. :/

Tools
There are a lot of good tools out there (if used properly and if their limits are understood) for maintaining compliance with IT/security policies. Relatively few tools, alas, exist for data governance frameworks or global legal compliance frameworks. Most organizations still operate manually in this regard.
