“Information Security Policy” or “ISMS Policy”?

The main global policy for Information Security. Is it to be called “Information Security Policy” or “ISMS Policy”? Got that doubt cause it’s referenced both ways in different documents.

Answer:

ISO 27001:2013 defines that the top-level policy should be called "Information Security Policy", however the old 2005 revision of ISO 27001 called this document "ISMS Policy".
