ISO/IEC 27005 is part of a growing family of International Standards published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in the area of Information security management systems (ISMS). This family of International Standards is often referred to as the 'ISO/IEC 27000 series'.

The purpose of ISO/IEC 27005 is to provide guidelines for information security risk management.
