Ely, England, 21 November 2011 – IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in ISO 27001 information, standards, books and tools has announced that ANSI versions of the ISO/IEC 27001 requirements and the ISO/IEC 27002 Code of Practice are now available for immediate download from their website. These ANSI versions offer clients substantial cost savings over other national or international adoptions of the standards.
Currently, information security should be a top priority on every organisation’s agenda. Regardless of whether an organisation is already in the process of implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS) or is just about to start the process, a copy of the ISO/IEC 27001 requirements and the ISO/IEC 27002 Code of Practice is the best point of reference and a ‘must have’ document for anyone responsible for implementation.
ISO/IEC 27001:2005 specifies the requirements for an information security management system and can be employed by all types of organisations. It provides an overview of the security controls that need to be implemented and then customised to the needs of individual organisations. This helps organisations select adequate and proportionate security controls that protect their information assets and give confidence to interested parties.
ISO/IEC 27002:2005 is the code of practice for information security management. It establishes guidelines and general principles for initiating, implementing, maintaining, and improving information security management in an organisation. The control objectives and controls in ISO/IEC 27002:2005 are intended to be implemented to meet the requirements identified by a risk assessment.
The benefits from buying the ANSI adoptions of the ISO/IEC 27001 requirements and the ISO/IEC 27002 Code of Practice are that they provide exactly the same content as the national or international adoptions whilst being less expensive.
