The ISO27k standards provide best practice guidance on protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information on which we all depend. Three standards in the series are already released and publicly available:
ISO 27001, the Information Security Management System certification standard;
ISO 27002 (previously known as BS 7799-1 and ISO 17799), the code of practice for information security management; and
ISO 27006, a guide to the ISMS certification process for certification bodies.
Several other ISO27k standards are currently in preparation.
More than 3,600 organizations have been certified against ISO 27001 worldwide with many thousands more using ISO 27002 as the basis for their Information Security Management Systems.
