Why is Information Security Management Important?
The answer is clear. Steven R. Chabinsky once said: “Thinking of cybersecurity solely as an IT issue is like believing that a company’s entire workforce, from the CEO down, is just one big HR issue.”
When a successful data breach occurs, finances, reputation, legal standing, and more can all be threatened. And even more worrisome is the fact that every year the number of data breaches surpasses the number of the year before. It is expected that by 2025, cybercrime is costing the world $10.5 trillion annually.
What are some of the most typical examples of data breaches?
- Ransomware – in 2020 there was one ransomware victim every 10 seconds
- Phishing – by far the most common attack performed by cybercriminals
- Internet of Things (IoT) – the number of Internet connected devices is expected to increase from 31 billion in 2020 to 75 billion in 2025. For many of these endpoint devices, information security is an afterthought
- Cloud Security, including Remote Working – in 2020, the number of cloud security incidents grew overall with 188%
These numbers speak for themselves. And there are many more examples.
What is Information Security Management?
Information security management describes controls that an organization needs to implement to ensure that it is sensibly protecting the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of assets from threats and vulnerabilities. In short, it is everything that you do to make sure your data is not breached.
The core of information security management includes information risk management. This is a process to assess the risks an organization must deal with in the management and protection of assets. This requires proper asset identification and valuation steps. As well as evaluating the value of confidentiality, integrity, availability, and replacement of assets.
As part of information security management, an organization may implement an information security management system and other best practices found in the ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002 standards on information security.
What is ISO/IEC 27001?
ISO/IEC 27001 is a globally known information security management standard, that provides the requirements for an information security management system (ISMS). Along with many other standards that are part of the ISO/IEC 27000 family, they enable organizations of any kind to manage the security of assets. For example, financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted by third parties.
ISO/IEC 27001 also includes requirements for the assessment and treatment of information security risks tailored to the needs of the organization. The requirements of the standard are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size or nature.
Nearly 50,000 organizations from around the globe are ISO/IEC 27001 certified. Independent auditors verify annually that their ISMS meets the requirements of this standard.
ISO/IEC 27001 Certification and Education
John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States once said: “There are risks and costs to a program of action — but they are far less than the long-range cost of comfortable inaction.”
ISO/IEC 27001 certification training and education targets the information security management discipline and capability of an organization. Starting from awareness training, all the way towards information security officer and auditor-level credentials.
