Risk Management Guidelines


Alex Dali from The Global Institute for Risk Management Standards posted this question on LinkedIn group ISO 27001:

"ISO 27001:2013 aligns its risk assessment & treatment with ISO 31000 (see clause 6.1.3) but ISO 27002:2013, clause 0.2 says such guidelines are provided by ISO 27005. Which one should be followed?"

Here is my response:

Answer to this question lies  in the titles of the two standards referred by you. ISO 31000 is "Risk Management- Principles and Guidelines" while ISO 27005 is "IT-Security Techniques- Info Security Risk management". So which one is  more appropriate for implementing information security? Obviously, ISO 27005.                                                               Alex, please let me know if you have different views. Thanks!
