ISO 27000 – Information Systems

Information Technology — Security Techniques — Information Security Management Systems — Overview and Vocabulary

ISO/IEC 27000 is part of a growing family of ISO/IEC Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) standards,  the ‘ISO/IEC 27000 series’. ISO/IEC 27000 is an international standard entitled: Information technology — Security  techniques — Information security management systems — Overview and vocabulary.

ISO/IEC 27000 provides:

  • An overview of and introduction to the entire ISO/IEC 27000 family of Information Security Management
    Systems (ISMS) standards.
  • A glossary or vocabulary of fundamental terms and definitions used throughout the ISO/IEC 27000 family.

ISO/IEC 27001

Information technology – Security Techniques – Information security management systems — Requirements.

This standard explains the purpose of an Information Security Management System (ISMS), a management system similar to those recommended by other ISO standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, used to manage information security risks and controls within an organization. Bringing information security deliberately under overt
management control is a central principle throughout the ISO/IEC 27000 standards.
