Resilience Compliance – ISO 27001:2022

ISO 27001 is the most widely-recognised and implemented framework for organisational resilience. By working towards compliance, businesses can better protect their critical IT in a systematic and cost-effective way.

Since its original publication in 1995, ISO27001 has become the de facto standard for information security management system (ISMS). With guidance for companies of all sizes and across sectors, conformity with the standard signifies that an organisation has taken a considered approach to protecting the data they own or manage.

However, as the digital landscape continues to evolve — and potential threats grow day by day — safeguarding against potential threats can feel like an impossible task. To help businesses meet this challenge, the ISO standard is periodically reviewed to reflect the ever-changing responsibilities and avenues of attack that businesses face.

What’s new in ISO 27001:2022?

In a relatively small (but still significant) update from the previous version released in 2013, ISO 27001:2022 marked a shift in focus from information security to a broader approach.

Most notably, this included key provisions for cloud security, data protection and physical security. The main changes were:

  • A new title, bringing cyber security and privacy into focus.
  • Revisions to the IS Management System standard, with requirements for organisational context and change planning, as well as criteria for processes and relevant controls.
  • Management review input to consider the changing needs and expectations of interested parties.

ISO 27001:2022 – new security controls

The latest standard included changes to the Security Controls in Annex A, which are now separated into four sections — People, Organisational, Technological and Physical.

While the number of total controls decreased from 114 to 93, there were 11 new additions:

  • Threat Intelligence
  • Information security for use of cloud services
  • ICT readiness for business continuity
  • Physical security monitoring
  • Configuration management
  • Information deletion
  • Data masking
  • Data leakage prevention
  • Monitoring activities
  • Web filtering
  • Secure coding
