Information is the lifeblood of all organisations and can exist in many forms. It can be printed or written on paper, stored electronically, transmitted by mail or by electronic means, shown in films, or spoken in conversation.
In today’s competitive business environment, such information is constantly under threat from many sources. These can be internal, external, accidental, or malicious. With the increased use of new technology to store, transmit, and retrieve information, we have all opened ourselves up to increased numbers and types of threats.
There is a need to establish a comprehensive Information Security Policy within all organisations. You need to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of both vital corporate information and customer information. The standard for Information Security Management System (ISMS) ISO27001, has fast become one of the world’s established biggest sellers.
An Information Security Management System (ISMS) is a systematic approach to managing sensitive company information so that it remains secure. It encompasses people, processes and IT systems. BSI has published a code of practice for these systems, ISO/IEC 17799, which is now being adopted internationally.
Develop an information security policy and identify your organisation’s key information assets. Purchase the standard, ISO/IEC 17799 & ISO27001 to help you do this.
ISO27001 is a standard setting out the requirements for an Information Security Management System. It helps identify, manage and minimise the range of threats to which information is regularly subjected.
