ISO/IEC 27002 Information Security Controls

What Is ISO/IEC 27002?

ISO/IEC 27002 is an international standard that provides guidelines for selecting and implementing information security controls and for implementing information security standards and practices. It is applicable to organizations of all industries or sizes. ISO/IEC 27002 can be used to develop information security management guidelines tailored to the specific context of an organization.

Originally published in 2005 and then updated in 2013, ISO/IEC 27002 was again revised and published in 2022. This new version provides a list of information security controls generally practiced in the information security industry, along with guidelines for their implementation. ISO/IEC 27002 provides four categories of information security controls: organizational (clause 5), people (clause 6), physical (clause 7), and technological (clause 8).

Why is ISO/IEC 27002 important for you?

An ISO/IEC 27002 training course provides guidelines for implementing, managing, and continually improving information security management in an organization.

Different organizations have different information security needs and capabilities. With that in mind, the controls of ISO/IEC 27002 are designed to be generic and flexible. The PECB ISO/IEC 27002 training courses are focused on equipping participants with the necessary knowledge for selecting, implementing, and managing such controls.

A PECB certification demonstrates the holder’s knowledge and ability to manage information security risks by applying relevant information security controls. It is also proof of their ability to help organizations preserve the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information, protect against threats and vulnerabilities, and reduce information security risks. Certified ISO/IEC 27002 individuals can be crucial members of an ISMS implementation team.
