The ISO 27000 series of standards is a catalog of international standards focused on information security and published by the International Standard for Organization. The most prominent from the series are ISO 27001, a management standard that can be audited, and ISO 27002, which prescribes best practices and controls - but is not a certification standard.


  • ISO 27001

    ISO 27001, recently updated after being first released in 2005, is a specification for an information security management system (ISMS). The standard lays out mandatory requirements that are able to be audited and certified. It contains a cycle of four phases that must continually be implemented.

  • The Plan Phase The Do Phase The Check Phase The Act Phase
    • Identify business objectives
    • Obtain management support
    • Select implementation scope
    • Define method of risk assessment
    • Prepare inventory of information assets to protect
    • Manage risks
    • Enact policies and procedures
    • Allocate resources and train staff
    • Monitor implementation of ISMS
    • Prepare for certification audit
    • Conduct regular assessment audits

  • ISO 27002

    ISO 27002 is not a formal specification and is not certifiable. Instead, it supports ISO 27001 by recommending detailed guidance for addressing information security objectives related to data confidentiality, integrity and availability, and deploying an ISMS. ISO 27002 contains 114 controls listed under the following main sections:

    • Structure
    • Securiy Policy
    • Organization of Information Security
    • Human Resources Security
    • Asset Management
    • Cryptography
    • Physical And Environmental Security
    • Operations security
    • Communications Security
    • Information Systems Acquisition, Development, Maintenance
    • Supplier Relationships
    • Information Security Incident management
    • Information Security Aspects of Business Continuity
    • Compliance
    • Access Control


  • SecureTrust provides a comprehensive portfolio that can help organizations of any size respond to the ISO 27000 series of standards.

    Plan and Prepare

    Conducting a Risk Assessment is the first step to identifying how organizational objectives may be affected and whether risk treatment is necessary. A risk assessment allows decision makers to gain an understanding of risks that could affect achievement of objectives, as well as of the adequacy and effectiveness of controls already in place. SecureTrust’s assessments, scaled individually for your organization, include identification of key assets and IT systems, assessment of controls and frameworks and a review of third-party providers and incident response.
