What's new in ISO27005?
"The new ISO/IEC 27005:20011 is a much better standard than was the 2008 version. First, it is a better written, more coherent standard. Second, it is aligned with the risk management standard ISO 31000, which makes it easier to integrate enterprise risk management approaches with information security risk management. Third, it provides good, practical guidance on carrying out the risk assessment required by ISO 27001, together with clear guidance on risk scales. Fourth, it has good guidance on threats, vulnerabilities, likelihoods and impacts."
