What is ISO 27001?

ISO 27001 is basically a specification for Information Securirty Management Systems(ISMS). ISMS is a framework of policies and procedures for the legal, physical and technical controls involved in a particular organization’s information risk mangement process.

The official docmentation by ISO seems to indicate that the specification was developed to “provide a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving an information security management system”

The implementation of ISO 27001 involves a top-down, tech-neutral and risk-based approach.The ISO specification has also defined a 6-part process of planning.

  1. Defining a security Policy
  2. Defining the scope of the ISMS
  3. Conducting Risk Assesment
  4. Management of Identfied Risks
  5. Selction of Control Objectives
  6. Preparation of a statement of applicability.

The specification does not mandate specific information security protocols it does however, provide a checklist of code practises compliant with ISO 270002. Most companies that adopt ISO 27001 also adopt ISO 27002
