ISO/IEC 27002 is a guidance document and it is designed to use as a reference for selecting controls while implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS) based on ISO/IEC 27001 or as a guidebook for organizations implementing commonly accepted information security controls. The current ISO/IEC 27002:2013 edition had been under reviewed since last year by ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC27 and is currently at DIS (Draft International Standard) stage. While part of controls remains unchanged, there are significant changes in control layout and other controls. Since the Annex A of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 is designed to align with ISO/IEC 27002, it is expected that the Annex A of ISO/IEC 27001 would be revised as well after the ISO/IEC 27002 is finalized.
