The Australian Cyber Security Centre receives a report of a cyber-attack approximately every eight minutes, with the rate and severity of reports increasing every year.

Unsurprisingly, an increasing number of business leaders feel their cybersecurity risks are rising, and are struggling to protect sensitive information from hackers. This in turn disrupts business continuity and also causes Financial Losses

When you break it down, 95% of cybersecurity breaches are caused by human error of some sort. While you can never 100% guarantee that your organisation won’t fall victim to a cyberattack, by having a robust system in place for the management of information, these risks can be significantly reduced.

The protection of information is paramount to organisations. A breach of data can cause not only monetary losses but also legal and reputational damage. By achieving ISO 27001 (ISMS) cyber security, your business will be better placed to reduce the incidence and ramifications of any cybersecurity breach.

An ISMS Management system is also very important for a number of additional reasons:

  • Secures your information in all forms
  • Increases your cybersecurity attack resilience
  • Reduces your information security costs
  • Respond to evolving security threats
  • Improves your overall organisational culture
  • It provides organisation wide protection
  • Protects the overall confidentiality of data
  • Provides a central framework

What is the ISO 27001:2022 Revision?

SO 27001:2022 is the latest version (or revision) of the standard that was published on October 25, 2022. It replaced the previous one, named ISO 27001:2013 after its last update in 2013.

What has changed in ISO 27001:2022?

The main part of ISO 27001, i.e., clauses 4 to 10, have not changed significantly. These clauses include the scope, interested parties, context, Information Security Policy, risk management, resources, training and awareness, communication, document control, monitoring and measurement, internal audit, management review, and corrective actions.

Only the security controls listed in ISO 27001 Annex A have been significantly updated.

In general, the changes are only moderate and were made primarily to simplify the implementation: The number of controls has decreased from 114 to 93, and they are placed in four sections instead of the previous 14. There are 11 new controls, while none of the controls were deleted, and many controls were merged.

Is it essential to work to ISO/IEC 27001:2022 to transition to ISO/IEC 27001:2022?

Whilst it is not essential, the update ISO/IEC 27002:2022 now does a lot of the “heavy lifting” with the new grouping, attributes, and descriptions, making it easier to implement ISO/IEC 27001:2022 controls effectively and enabling easier alignment with cybersecurity frameworks, and other risk management methodologies.

If we have until October 2025 to transition, why should we take action now?

The changes reflect the evolution on how we work and the associated threats, plus they enable a clearer and more flexible implementation, so it is important to start on the journey ASAP to: Ensure your Information Security posture reflects your current digital business profile and associated risk. Get the most from a more flexible controls structure that now easily aligns with global cybersecurity frameworks. Improve the efficiency of your management system by bring it into line with the latest harmonized structure for management systems.

What is the transition period?

The transition period is 3 years
