What are ISMS standards?

ISMS standards are a set of international standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for information security management systems (ISMS). They provide a framework for organizations to implement and maintain an effective ISMS. I

SMS standards provide guidance on how to identify, assess, and manage information security risks in an organization. They are based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle, which is a continuous improvement process that organizations can use to improve their ISMS.

The main ISMS standard is ISO/IEC 27001, which outlines the requirements for an ISMS. It covers topics such as risk assessment, security controls, system documentation, and audit and review. Other standards in the ISO/IEC 27000 family provide additional best practices in data protection and cyber resilience.

Overall, ISMS standards provide organizations with a comprehensive framework to protect their information assets and ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations.
