ISO27001/ISO27002 A Pocket Guide, Second Edition


This indispensable pocket guide provides a useful overview of two important information security standards. Packed with practical advice for implementing an information security management system, you’ll wonder how you coped without it.


Protect your organisation’s information with ISO27001:2013

Information is one of your organisation’s most important resources and keeping that information secure is vital to your business.

This handy pocket guide is an essential overview of two key information security standards that cover the formal requirements (ISO27001:2013) for creating an Information Security Management System (ISMS), and the best-practice recommendations (ISO27002:2013) for those responsible for initiating, implementing or maintaining it.

An ISMS based on ISO27001/ISO27002 offers a host of benefits:

  • Improved efficiency by having information security systems and procedures in place, enabling you to focus more on your core business.
  • Protects your information assets from a wide range of cyber threats, criminal activity, insider compromise and system failure.
  • Manage your risks systematically and establish plans to eliminate or reduce cyber threats.
  • Enables earlier detection of threats or processing errors, and faster resolution.
