ISO/IEC is an information security standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and by the International Electrotechnical. I talked, earlier this week, about the evident gap between the concern expressed (in the ISBS survey) by the majority of managers about.

There should be a policy on the io of encryption, plus cryptographic authentication and integrity controls such as digital signatures and message authentication codes, and cryptographic key management.
Changes to systems both applications and operating systems should be controlled. Scope The standard gives recommendations for those who are responsible for selecting, implementing and managing information security.
Please join the discussion on the ISO27k Forum. Management should is a set of policies to clarify their direction of, and support for, information security. In the release, there is 1799 complete lack of reference to BYOD and cloud computing – two very topical and pressing information security issues where the standard could have given practical guidance. For each of the controls, implementation guidance is provided. Bibliography The standard concludes with a reading list of 27!
I argued that information security and business continuity are so tightly intertwined that this section should is rewritten from scratch to emphasize three distinct but complementary aspects resilience, recovery and contingency.
Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Information storage media should be managed, controlled, moved and disposed of in such a way that the information content is not compromised. Two approaches are currently being considered in parallel:. Information security responsibilities should be taken into account when recruiting permanent employees, contractors and temporary staff e.
It may not be perfect but it is good enough on the whole.
Software packages should ideally not be modified, and secure system engineering principles should be followed. Security control requirements should be analyzed and specified, including web applications and transactions.
Rather than leaping straight in to the updates, SC 27 is reconsidering the entire structure of the standard this time around. Esteemed representatives of a number of national standards bodies met in person to discuss and consider this dreadful situation at some length and some cost to their respective taxpayers.
This is the 21st Century, friends! Specialist advice should be sought regarding protection against fires, floods, earthquakes, bombs etc. Development, test and operational systems should be separated.
Certification Association “Russian Register”
There should be policies, procedures, awareness etc. It was revised again in Appropriate backups should be taken and retained in accordance with a backup policy. This article needs additional citations for verification. Views Read Edit View history.
Option 6 below is a possible solution.

The amount of detail is responsible for the standard being nearly 90 A4 pages in length. The control objective relating to the relatively simple sub-subsection 9.
Converting into a multi-partite standard would have several advantages: Cover all the aspects of information security that need to be covered through other ISO27k standards, or indeed other standards outside the remit of SC Currently, series of standards, describing information security management system model includes: Two approaches are currently being considered in parallel: Each of the control objectives is supported by at least one controlgiving a total of In my considered opinion based on the horrendous problems that dogged the to revision, it is no longer maintainable, hence it is no longer viable in its current form.
A 17999 disciplinary process is necessary to handle information security incidents allegedly caused by workers. Information security management system can be integrated with any other management system, e.
It bears more than a passing resemblance to a racing horse designed by a committee i.
ISO/IEC code of practice
This has resulted in a few oddities such as section 6. ISMS implementation guidance and further resources.
A given control may have several applications e.
As I see it, there are several options:
