New Version of ISO 27001 Launched

By November 8, 2022 No Comments

The International Organization Standardisation (ISO) has published an updated version of ISO/IEC 27001 which is now titled:

Information Security, Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection

The amended title really highlights the importance of Cyber Resilience to organisations.

new version of iso 27001
Information Security and Cyber Resilience are crucial to every organisation

The biggest change to the standard is to Annex A where a number of controls have been merged and renamed (which has also resulted in a decrease in the number of controls from 114 to 93). This has allowed improved alignment with the latest version of ISO 27002 which was published earlier this year.
It is likely that certification bodies will be able to assess against the new standard in the first half of 2023 although this timing will be dependent on UKAS.
