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. :/

Re: Tools
"Most organizations still operate manually in this regard." Good point. Most of these operations are mainly manual for many companies.

Continuous auditing
Continuous compliance requires continuous auditing, that can only be achieved with the proper tools.

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.
