Why should you use this standard?
It plugs the gap left between the international standard on information security risk management that was last published in 2011 (ISO/IEC 27005:2011) and the revised ISO/IEC 27001 which was published in 2013.
As such BS 7799-3:2017 provides essential support for the implementation of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Information technology - Security techniques - Information security management systems – Requirements and all sectoral and application specific uses of that standard.
NOTE: BS 7799-3:2017, or its successor(s), will be available until ISO/IEC publish a revised version of ISO/IEC 27005:2011, when it will be withdrawn.
