The ISO/IEC 27002:2013 Standard

ISO 27002:2013 is the international Standard which supports the implementation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS) based on the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2013. It establishes the guidelines and general principles for initiating, implementing, maintaining, and improving information security management in an organisation.

What are the differences between 2005 and 2013 editions of ISO/IEC 27002?

ISO/IEC 27002:2013 has been updated to reflect the many changes which have taken effect in ISO/IEC 27001, and is fully aligned to the new 2013 version of ISO 27001.

For example:

  • The number of controls in ISO/IEC 27002 has been changed to match the number in ISO/IEC 27001, and ISO 27002 now specifies 35 control objectives, each of which is supported by at least one control, giving a total number of 114.
  • As the structure of Annex A in ISO 27001 has been updated, so ISO 27002 has been updated to reflect the new structure.
  • The terminology used in the standard has been revised to be aligned with that in ISO 27001.
