ISO/IEC 27001 is the internationally recognised standard for the management of information security. Since ISO 27001 was first published in 2005, it has become widely known and followed. It’s now part of a much larger family, of which ISO/IEC 27000 is the root for the whole numbered series of international standards for the management of information security.
Developed by a joint committee of the International Standards Organization (ISO) in Geneva and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), these standards now provide a globally recognized framework for good information security management.
Organisations interested in using or applying these standards should acquire copies, which are available through our site in both hard copy and downloadable formats.
