What is ISO?

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations. ISO founded on 23 February 1947, the organization promotes worldwide proprietary, industrial and commercial standards. It is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, and as of 2013 works in 164 countries.

What is IEC?

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a non-profit, non-governmental international standards organization that prepares and publishes International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies – collectively known as “electro technology”. IEC standards cover a vast range of technologies from power generation, transmission and distribution to home appliances and office equipment, semiconductors, fiber optics, batteries, solar energy, nanotechnology and marine energy as well as many others. The IEC also manages three global conformity assessment systems that certify whether equipment, system or components conform to its International Standards.

What is ISO/IEC 27001?

ISO 27001 is an information security standard, which is published by theInternational Organization for Standardization (ISO) and theInternational Electro technical Commission (IEC) under the joint ISO and IEC subcommittee, ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27. It is a specification for an information security management system (ISMS). Organizations which meet the standard may gain an official certification issued by an independent and accredited certification body on successful completion of a formal audit process.


ISO/IEC 27001 is derived from BS 7799 Part 2, published in 1999. BS 7799 Part 2 was revised by BSI in 2002, explicitly incorporating Deming’s Plan-Do-Check-Act cyclic process concept, and was adopted by ISO/IEC as ISO/IEC 27001 in 2005. It was extensively revised in 2013, and ISO/IEC 127001:2013 is latest one.


Certified compliance with ISO/IEC 27001 by an accredited and respected certification body is entirely optional but is increasingly being demanded from suppliers and business partners by organizations that are (quite rightly!) concerned about the security of their information, and about information security throughout the supply chain or network.
