Welcome to the first edition of The ISO27000 Newsletter, designed to keep you abreast of news and developments with respect to 17799 and information security. The newsletter will comprise a combination of inclusive articles and the identification of useful and topical sources on the web.
This initial edition covers:
BS7799/ISO17799 - SAME STANDARD DIFFERENT COVER
It is worth clearing this up at the outset, as it confuses many people. The core content of the latest editions of these standards IS the same. The documents simply have different badges, intros, etc.
Much of the confusion stems from the fact that earlier edition of BS7799 (which preceded ISO17799) did have some differences. However, this is no longer the case - buy one and you effectively buy both.
