ISO 27001:2022 has now been updated! Here’s what you need to know so far…
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.
ISO 27001:2022 was published at the end of October and will now replace ISO 27001:2013. But don’t panic. You have three years to transition over to the new Standard, however we would recommend you starting 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.
ISO 27001 has seen a significant change and has been revised to fall in line with other standards. This update includes changes to the Statement of Applicability and Risk Register. The Annex A controls has been regrouped to four broad themes and the overall number of controls has been reduced from 114 to 93. Several of the previous controls has been integrated and new ones added.
To understand the changes and how to gain compliance with ISO 27001:2022, we recommend attending one of our ISO 27001 Upgrade Seminars. You can book your place here.
