Effective CISSP Questions

As a CISO, you decide to implement Information security management systems and to be certified as compliant with ISO 27001 standard, in which actions to address risks and opportunities are required. You realize this requirement is about risk management and start evaluating risk management frameworks to meet the requirement. To implement a risk management program, which of the following least meets the requirement?
A. NIST FARM Framework (Frame, Assess, Respond, and Monitor)
B. ISO 27002
C. ISO 27005
D. ISO 31000

Kindly be reminded that the suggested answer is for your reference only. It doesn’t matter whether you have the right or wrong answer. What really matters is your reasoning process and justifications.

My suggested answer is B. ISO 27002.
