This "New normal" can be seen as a change in organizational context and this situation is already considered in ISO management system standards, so standards will not need to change because of this situation.

However, since the "New norm" is a change in organizational context, organizations will need to review how it will impact their management systems and make changes as needed. The coverage and complexity of potentially needed changes will vary according business needs, objectives, and applicable legal requirements related to their management systems.

For example, an organziation can identify that costs related to people working for home are less that keeping them in the office, even when considering addition inIT infrastracture costs, and this can prompt a review in the ISMS. Another example is that governments can issue new laws or regulations about use of personnal data that can impact current privacy controls and processes.
