The ISO/IEC 27000-series (also known as the 'ISMS Family of Standards' or 'ISO27k' for short) comprises information security standards published jointly by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
The series provides best practice recommendations on information security management, risks and controls within the context of an overall information security management system (ISMS), similar in design to management systems for quality assurance (the ISO 9000 series) and environmental protection (the ISO 14000 series).
The series is deliberately broad in scope, covering more than just privacy, confidentiality and IT or technical security issues. It is applicable to organizations of all shapes and sizes. All organizations are encouraged to assess their information security risks, then implement appropriate information security controls according to their needs, using the guidance and suggestions where relevant. Given the dynamic nature of information security, the ISMS concept incorporates continuous feedback and improvement activities, summarized by Deming's "plan-do-check-act" approach, that seek to address changes in the threats, vulnerabilities or impacts of information security incidents.
The standards are the product of ISO/IEC JTC1 (Joint Technical Committee 1) SC27 (Sub Committee 27), an international body that meets in person twice a year.
At present, twenty-three of the standards in the series are published and available, while several more are still under development. The original ISO/IEC standards are sold directly by ISO, while sales outlets associated with various national standards bodies also sell various versions including local translations.
- ISO/IEC 27000 — Information security management systems — Overview and vocabulary 
- ISO/IEC 27001 — Information security management systems — Requirements. The older ISO/IEC 27001:2005 standard relied on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle; the newer ISO/IEC 27001:2013 does not, but has been updated in other ways to reflect changes in technologies and in how organisations manage information.
