What Is the ISO 27001 Security Standard?

The ISO 27001 Security Standard provides detailed guidelines for the people, policies, and processes that ultimately define how an information security management system (ISMS) is built and managed. Published by the ISO and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), this standard compels organizations to carefully evaluate their specific business needs and to perform detailed risk assessment. This information then guides how each organization selects and prioritizes specific controls from among the 14 categories defined by ISO 27001. These are listed below alphabetically.

  • Communications security
    Employee access control
    Encryption and management of sensitive information
    Human resource security
    Information asset management
    Information security aspects of business continuity management
    Information security incident management
    Information security policies
    Operations security
    Organization of information security and assignment of responsibility
    Physical and environmental security
    Supplier relationships
    System acquisition, development, and maintenance
