ISO/IEC certification standard
Organizations that meet the requirements may be certified by an accredited certification body following successful completion of an audit. Most organizations have a number of information security controls. However, without an information security management system ISMScontrols tend to be somewhat disorganized and disjointed, having been implemented often as point solutions to specific situations or simply as a matter of convention.
Security controls in operation typically address certain aspects of IT or data security specifically; leaving non-IT information assets such as paperwork and proprietary knowledge less protected on ios whole.
Moreover, business continuity planning and physical security may be managed quite independently of IT or information security while Human Resources practices may make little reference to the need to define and assign information security roles and responsibilities throughout the organization. What controls will be tested as part of certification to ISO is dependent on the certification auditor.
This can include any controls that the organisation has deemed to be within the scope of the ISMS and this testing can be to any depth or extent as assessed by the auditor as needed to test that the control has been implemented and is operating effectively.
ISO 27001 vs. ISO 27002
Management determines the scope of the ISMS for certification purposes and may limit it to, say, a single business unit or location. Its use in the context of ISO is no longer mandatory. BS Part 3 was published incovering risk analysis and management.
The official title of the standard is “Information technology — Security techniques — Information security management systems — Requirements”. Annexes B and C of The standard has a completely different structure than the standard which had five clauses. The standard puts more emphasis on measuring and evaluating how well an organization’s ISMS is performing,  and there is a new section on outsourcingwhich reflects the fact that many organizations rely on third parties to provide some aspects of IT.
ISO vs. ISO – What’s the difference?
It does not emphasize the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle is A very important change in the new version of ISO is that there is now no requirement to use the Annex A controls to manage the information security risks. The previous version insisted “shall” that controls identified in the risk assessment to manage the risks must have been selected from Annex A.
Thus almost every risk assessment ever completed under the old version of ISO used Annex A controls but an increasing number of risk assessments in the new version do not use Annex A as the control set.
This enables the risk assessment to be simpler and much more meaningful to the organization and helps 207001 with establishing a proper sense of ownership of both the risks and controls. This is the main reason for this change in the new version. There are now controls in 14 clauses and 35 control categories; the standard had controls in 11 groups.
