ISO 27001 Update: What to Expect

20 May, 2022

The ISO 27001 update is on the way but what will be changing and when?

Why is ISO 27001 being updated?

This is standard practice with ISO. Every five to eight years, International Standards are reviewed by all ISO member bodies to identify whether they are still relevant.

The pandemic has caused a leap in the adoption of technology, with more of us working from home, shopping online and video conferencing than ever before. This has caused a rise in cybercrime. An analysis from Canalys reported more records being compromised in the first 12 months of the pandemic than the previous 15 years combined. 

What will be changing?

ISO 27001 will be revised to fall in line with other standards. This update will include changes to the information security controls and current information security practices.

When will ISO 27001 be updated?

No date has been confirmed but it is likely to be released sometime towards the end of 2022 or early 2023.

There will be plenty of time to update your existing Standard (usually three years) but we would recommend you start the process as soon as possible. This is to ensure you have plenty of time to gain compliance, ensuring it’s stress-free for you.

What do I need to do?

If you’re already a client, nothing. Once the revision has been released, we will get you started at your next visit. However, if you have any questions in the meantime, please contact your account manager on 0330 058 5551.

If you’re not a client or have ISO 27001 Accredited certification with a body such as UKAS or INAB, we can still support you through the process with ISO Consultancy

Our Assessors have a wealth of experience in supporting clients through updates such as these. We believe in a collaborative and supportive approach, simplifying the process to ensure it remains straightforward and stress-free for you.
