What is ISO 27002?ISO 27002 is a guideline for organizational information security standards and best practices for information security management. Considering the business’s information security risk environments, ISO 27002 focuses on the organization’s selection, implementation, and management of controls. It is meant to be used as a guide, based on ISO 27001, for identifying appropriate security controls in implementing an ISMS.
Ultimately, while ISO 27002 is more of a guideline to achieving best practices and has subtle differences from ISO 27001, it also serves to demonstrate the stability of your organization’s ISMS. The main difference is that ISO 27002 does not distinguish between controls applicable to your particular organization and those which are not. ISO 27002 is a reference for selecting security controls rather than a certification process.
