ISO/IEC 27001:2022 is a risk-based set of information security requirements that require an organization to have a well-structured Information Security Management System (ISMS). Maintenance of the system requires annual audits by external auditors, ongoing risk assessments, and continuous improvement of the system.
ISO/IEC 27017:2015 provides guidance on the information security aspects of cloud computing, recommending the implementation of cloud-specific information security controls that supplement the guidance of the ISO/IEC 27002 and ISO/IEC 27001 standards. This code of practice provides additional information security controls implementation guidance specific to cloud service providers.
ISO/IEC 27018:2019 is a code of practice that focuses on the protection of personal data in the cloud. It is based on ISO/IEC information security standard 27002 and provides implementation guidance on ISO/IEC 27002 controls applicable to public cloud Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
The design goal of ISO 27701 is to enhance the existing Information Security Management System (ISMS) with additional requirements in order to establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve a Privacy Information Management System (PIMS). The standard outlines a framework for Personally Identifiable Information (PII) Controllers and PII Processors to manage privacy controls to reduce the risk to the privacy rights of individuals.
