ISO 27001 + 2 Review

ISO 27001 and  27002 Review

The ISO ( International Organization for Standardization)27001 standard was published in October 2005, essentially replacing the old BS7799-2 standard.

Information security management systems — Requirements =  ISO 27001

It is the specification for an ISMS, an Information Security Management System.

The objective of the standard itself is to “provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an Information Security Management System.

It employs the PDCA, Plan-Do-Check-Act model to structure the processes.

Code of practice for information security management =  ISO 27002

The ISO 27002 standard is the rename of the ISO 17799 standard, and is a code of practice for information security. It basically outlines hundreds of potential controls and control mechanisms, which may be implemented, in theory, subject to the guidance provided within ISO 27001.
