ISO/IEC 27001:2013 An Overview

  1. 1. In this article I will provide an Overview of A new Information Security Management System Standard ISO/IEC 27001:2013 , The new standard just Published from a few Days Earlier . ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Provides requirements for Establishing, Implementing, Maintaining and Continually Improving an Information Security Management System. The adoption of an information security management system is a strategic decision for an organization. The establishment and implementation of an organization’s information security management system is influenced by the organization’s needs and objectives, The standard covers all types of organizations (e.g. commercial , government agencies, non-profits), all sizes (from micro-businesses to huge multinationals), and all industries/ segments (e.g. retail, banking, defense, healthcare, education and government). The Information Security Management System (ISMS) preserves the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of information by applying a Risk Management process and gives confidence to interested parties that Risks are adequately managed. • Confidentiality - ensuring that access to information is appropriately authorized • Integrity - safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods • Availability - ensuring that authorized users have access to information when they need it.
