Sound information security is the cornerstone of sensible corporate governance. The emergence of an international standard to support this, was perhaps, inevitable. However, it took until the second half of the 1990's for this process to really take shape.

ISO 27000 is often used as a generic term to describe what is a series of documents: but primarily ISO 27002 (aka ISO 17799), which is a set of security controls (a code of practice), and ISO 27001 (formerly BS7799-2), which is a standard 'specification' for an Information Security Management System (an ISMS).

The information below is designed to introduce these documents, and help you take those first steps to understanding the standard, and how it could be implemented in your own organization.

ISO 27000 - The Information Security Standards 

Introducing ISO27000
What are ISO 27002, ISO 27001 and BS7799? Where do they come from? What exactly do they contain?

The Starting Point
How do I learn more about the standard? Where do I obtain a copy? What should be the first steps forward to align?

Awareness, Compliance Or Certification?
There is little doubt that the security standard has in recent years reached a 'critical mass' threshold: meaning that it has established itself in so many major organizations that it has become self perpetuating. It is referenced in all sorts of places, and is becoming the common benchmark against which information security is measured.

This does not necessarily mean full steam ahead to certification, however. In many case, there is simply no case for this: loose alignment, or verifyable 'compliance' with the standard is more than sufficient.

It is important that these differences are understood. However far you wish to proceed with the standard, whether the brief is simply awareness, or whether it is certification, this portal will hopefully have proved to be extremely valuable.
