The ISO 27002:2022 controls

ISO 27002 was updated in February 2022. The new controls highlighted within ISO 27002:2022 are now referenced in Annex A of the new version of ISO 27001 which was published in October 2022.

This means organisations that currently use Annex A controls will be required to update their Information Security Management System (ISMS) taking into account the new controls prior to being assessed against ISO 27001:2022.

ISO 27002 controls gap analysis FAQs

What is ISO 27002?

ISO 27002 is the set of technical controls which is referenced in Annex A of ISO 27001. It explains each of the controls in more detail and provides information on what the control is, what the objective of the control is and how to implement it. Consider it as the user manual for the controls.

What’s the difference between ISO 27002 and ISO 27001?

  1. ISO 27001 is the central framework of the ISO 27000 series. ISO 27001 is the standard that defines how to implement an information security management system. It is made up of a series of clauses, of which, clauses 4-10 define the management system requirements and Annex A, which defines the information security controls that can be used to address risks identified.
  2. ISO 27002 provides detail on the security controls, as while they are listed in Annex A of 27001, the information provided is very limited. In particular, it describes how to implement it and the objectives of the controls. It is important to note that an organisation cannot certify to ISO 27002, because it’s only a supplementary standard. It is only possible to achieve certification to ISO 27001.

Do I have to conform to the new ISO 27002 controls if I am already ISO 27001 certified?

Not yet, but you will eventually. Once the new version of ISO 27001 comes out (which is expected in the autumn of 2022) this will reference the new ISO 27002:2022 controls. It is widely expected that organisations will have two years from the date of the publication of the new ISO 27001:2022 to achieve certification against the new standard, however this is yet to be confirmed.

How many controls are there in ISO 27002?

There are 93 controls in 27002:2022, in comparison to the 114 controls in 27002:2013. In 27002:2013, controls were broken into 14 control sets. With 27002:2022, the structure has been changed to group the controls by four themes: People (8 controls), Organisational (37 controls), Technological (34 controls) and Physical (14 controls).

ISO 27002:2022 has also introduced 11 new controls which cover:

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

24 controls have been merged from two, three, or more controls from the 2013 version; thus reducing the number of overall controls in the 2022 version.
