Information Security Management
An Information Security Management is a systematic approach to managing sensitive information so that it remains secure. It includes people, processes and systems by applying a risk management process. It can help small, medium and large businesses in any kind of industries keep information assets secure. This system helps to prevent and counteract interruptions to services offered by the organization. It protects the organization from the effects of information security incidents and disasters occurring in the Information processing systems to ensure continued secure operations.
By implementing ISMS an organization ensures it has a model for establishing, implementing, operating, reviewing, maintaining and improving the security of the information including those of the customer, held by the organization. ISMS looks at the organizations Information Assets through a Risk Assessment process. The process looks at the likelihood of an attack or failure, the impact that such attacks or failures would have on the organization and the type of appropriate controls required to protect the assets. ISMS improves the organization’s reliability and security.
Stages involved in Information Security Management
The ISO/IEC 27001 defines requirements for a risk-based Information Security Management System (ISMS) and provides a framework to implement the essentials guidelines by using a “Plan-Do-Check-Act” (PDCA) process model.
Define and implement a Risk Assessment approach.
Vulnerability tracking and reporting.
Remediation and validation
Selection of appropriate controls and control objectives from Annex A of the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard.
Prepare an SOA (Statement of Applicability) which is a list of applicable information security controls for the organization.
Document policies and procedures of the applicable controls implemented.
Review and improve on the effectiveness of the controls regularly.
Services We Provide
Identifying all active hosts, services and associated assets where sensitive information resides or is processed.
Define and implement a Risk assessment approach
Once asset identification and valuation have been completed and the organization has formulated an SoS, it's time to conduct a detailed risk assessment that will inform the production of the ISMS.
Vulnerability Tracking & Reporting
Vulnerabilities are a measure of how susceptible the software asset could be to the threats.
Impact and Likelihood
Organisations can now assess the likelihood of certain type of breaches occuring along with the magnitude of the potential damage that would result from each type of data breach.
How will it help you?
During a disruption, an organization must determine its severity, potential impacts, and then communicate with employees, contract workers, customers, vendors, management and other key stakeholders. Emergency notification systems relay corporate communications in real time, through phone messages, texts, emails and mobile applications. Organizations of any size should have an effective communications plan during emergencies. It is especially vital if the organization and its stakeholders are spread over multiple geographical locations.
