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.

However, some control objectives are not applicable in every case and their generic wording is unlikely to reflect the precise requirements of every organization, especially given the very wide range of organizations and industries to which the standard applies. Currently, series of standards, describing information security management system model includes:. Aside from the not 117999 matter of the extraordinarily slow pace of SC 27, and the constraints of ISO policies, this has the potential to cause utter chaos and confusion, and expense.
Structure of this standard Security control clauses Of the 21 sections or chapters of the jso, 14 specify control objectives and controls. Views Read Edit View history. There should be a policy on the use of encryption, plus cryptographic authentication and integrity controls such izo digital signatures and message authentication codes, and cryptographic key management. However, various other standards are mentioned in the standard, and there is a bibliography. SC 27 could adopt collaborative working practices, jointly developing a revised version of through real-time collaborative development and editing of a shared documentat least as far as io Committee Drafts when the approach might revert to the existing formalized methods to complete the process and issue a revised standard.
ISO determines requirements for organizations of any type, regardless of its size, area of activity and geographical location.
Problems, related to information security, still exist at the moment. Given a suitable database application, the sequencing options are almost irrelevant, whereas the tagging and description of the controls is critical. A given control may have several applications e.
Where relevant, duties should be segregated across roles and individuals to avoid conflicts of interest and prevent 1799 activities. ISO standards by standard number.

Converting into a multi-partite standard would have several advantages:. Information security aspects of business continuity management There should be policies, procedures and agreements e. In the release, there is a 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.
ISO/IEC code of practice
There is so much content, in fact, and so many changes due to the ongoing evolution of information security, that I feel it has outstripped the capabilities of SC It will be interesting to see how this turns out.
Capacity and performance should be managed. Many controls could have been put in several sections but, to avoid duplication and conflict, they were arbitrarily assigned to one and, in some cases, cross-referenced from elsewhere. It bears more than a passing resemblance to a racing horse designed by a committee i.
Currently, series of standards, describing information security management system model includes: Option 6 below is a possible solution. The development environment should be secured, and outsourced development should be controlled.
Information security is defined within the standard in the context of the C-I-A triad:. Retrieved 1 November
