What's new in ISO27005?
"The new ISO/IEC 27005:2011 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 ISO31000, 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 ISO27001, together with clear guidance on risk scales. Fourth, it has good guidance on threats, vulnerabilities, likelihoods and impacts."
