ISO 27001 vs ISO 27002

Can you tell me what's the difference between 27001 and 27002? Which standard contains mandatory steps and which just contains best practice advice? How can you tell?

The main differences are:

  • ISO 27001 is a certifiable standard that defines the requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS), as well as provide, on its Annex A, suggested security controls to be implemented, according to results of risk assessment or legal obligations.
  • ISO 27002 is a non-certifiable standard that provides details and guidance on the implementation of the controls from ISO 27001 Annex A.
  • ISO 27002 is not mandatory to be certified against ISO 27001.
