ISO 27001:2015 Information Security Management System (ISMS)

ISO 27001:2015 Information Security Management System (ISMS)

Information is the lifeblood of all organizations 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.

There is a need to establish a comprehensive Information Security Policy within all organizations. You need to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of both vital corporate information and customer information.

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.

ISO/IEC 27001:2015 (formerly BS 7799-2:2002) establish best practices of control objectives and controls in the following areas of information security management:

  • Security policy
  • Organization of information security
  • Asset management
  • Human resources security
  • Physical and environmental security
  • Communications and operations management
  • Access control
  • Information systems acquisition, development and maintenance
  • Information security incident management;
  • Business continuity management;
  • Compliance.

This International Standard covers all types of organizations (e.g. commercial enterprises, government agencies, not-for profit organizations). This International Standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented ISMS within the context of the organizational overall business risks. It specifies requirements for the implementation of security controls customized to the needs of individual organizations or parts thereof.

The ISMS is designed to ensure the selection of adequate and proportionate security controls that protect information assets and give confidence to interested parties.

References to business™ in this International Standard should be interpreted broadly to mean those activities that are core to the purposes for the organizational existence.
