ISO 28000 focuses on aspects critical to manage and assure supply chain security risks. This may include financing, manufacturing, information management and transportation, in-transit storage and warehousing of goods.

It specifies the aspects to help the organization to assess security threats and to manage them as they arise in their supply chain. Security Management is related to other aspects of business management.  With ISO 28000, organizations can determine if appropriate security measures are in place and can protect their properties from various threats.

ISO 28000:2007 was initially developed so that organizations of varying scale could apply the standard to their supply chains of various degrees of complexity. Now, after the revison, ISO 28000:2022 can be applied beyond the supply chain to all aspects of the organization

This second edition of ISO 28000 cancelles and replaces the first edition from 2007. The primary objective of the revision was to align the standard to the Harmonized Structure (HS) laid out in the ISO Directives Annex SL Appendix 2 for ISO managements system standards in its latest version. This alignment makes the standard fully integratable and easy to use together with other managements systems standards like ISO 9001 on quality management or ISO 22301 for business continuity management.

The structure of the ISO 28000 for supply chains is organized into the following main areas:

Security Management Plan Defined
Security Management Plan Implemented
Security Management Plan Assessment and Audit
