ISO 27001 / 27002 Information Security Framework

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) created a standard for Information Security that is the basis for certifications to demonstrate effective cybersecurity programs for internal and external stakeholders.

ISO27001:2022 is the latest iteration of the 27001 series that provides the framework for implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS) which provides continual improvements to secure information assets across the pillars of confidentiality, integrity and availability. The framework is comprised of clauses and controls. Clauses outline the organization and management controls to maintain the program and manage risk, while controls outlined in Annex A are the activities required to mitigate the risks identified from the risk assessment process. Certification is derived from the ISO 27001 series requirements over that can be evidenced over a period of time.

ISO27002:2022 is the latest iteration of the 27002 series that supports the ISMS from 27001 with additional implementation guidance and control details found in Annex A of the ISO 27001 standard.

The ISO standards are meant to apply to any organization, region, or industry, and are typically followed by larger international organizations and those that operate out of Europe and Asia.
