ISO 27002 (17799) is a code of practice for information security
It can be used by any organization that needs
to establish a comprehensive information security management
program or improve its current information security practices.

When the standard was officially published on June 15, 2005, it was
known as ISO/IEC 17799 2005. On July 1, 2007, the name was formally
changed to ISO/IEC 27002 2005. However, nothing else has changed.
The content is still exactly the same. The name was changed in order
to make it clear that ISO/IEC 17799 belongs with the ISO/IEC 27000
series of information security standards.

The ISO/IEC 17799 2005 standard (now ISO/IEC 27002 2005)
was developed by the IT Security Subcommittee (SC 27) of the
Joint Technical Committee on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC 1).
It cancels and replaces the old ISO/IEC 17799 2000 standard which
is now obsolete. While much of the content is the same, the new
ISO/IEC 17799 2005 (27002) standard has been entirely rewritten,
reorganized, and updated in order to address new and emerging
information security issues. In addition, one new section has been
added on information security incident management (section 13).
