International Standard ISO/IEC was prepared by the British Standards Institution (as BS ) and was adopted, under a special “fast-track procedure”, . ISO is an internationally recognized Information Security Management Standard, first published by ISO/IEC in December Organizations can use ISO as a model for creating information security policies in the international standard ISO/lEC Information Technology - Security .. Accessed 12 July, at osakeya.info osakeya.info ISO/IEC , Information Technology - Security Techniques -.
The existing controls are being reviewed and maybe rewritten given the different contexts. Such an approach could potentially reduce the number of controls by about half. 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 In my considered opinion based on the horrendous problems that dogged the to revision, it is no longer maintainable, hence it is no longer viable in its current form.
I argued that information security and business continuity are so tightly intertwined that this section should be rewritten from scratch to emphasize three distinct but complementary aspects resilience, recovery and contingency.
Indeed I provided a completely re-written section to the committee but, for various unsatisfactory reasons, we have ended up with a compromise that makes a mockery of the entire subject.
Take for example the fact that revising the standard has consumed thousands of man-hours of work and created enormous grief for all concerned, over several years, during which time the world around us has moved on. 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.
It bears more than a passing resemblance to a racing horse designed by a committee i. This implies the need for a set of SC 27 projects and editors to work on the separate parts, plus an overall coordination team responsible for ensuring continuity and consistency across them all.
Converting into a multi-partite standard would have several advantages: The individual parts could be revised independently to keep pace with the evolution of information security, particularly but not exclusively the technological aspects; The individual parts would be more manageable: reviewing, commenting and editing them would be more feasible within the constraints of an international committee working almost exclusively through just 2 face-to-face meetings per year; The main clauses of the current and revised versions of naturally imply the scope of the subsidiary parts though not necessarily a one-to-one relationship ; Some of those implied subsidiary parts are already in place, or under development, as separately-numbered ISO27k standards.
However, coordination across several semi-independent project teams would be an onerous task, implying a concerted effort up-front to clearly and explicitly define the ground rules, scopes and objectives of the subsidiary parts, and ongoing proactive involvement of a management team with its fingers on the pulse of all the subsidiary project teams.
Option 6 below is a possible solution. Option 2: re-cast as a far more succinct, higher-level overview standard with links to other, more detailed standards to fill-in the details. It would be small enough to be feasible for the current ways of working within SC Option 3: SC 27 could adopt collaborative working practices, jointly developing a revised version of through real-time collaborative development and editing of a shared document, at least as far as the Committee Drafts when the approach might revert to the existing formalized methods to complete the process and issue a revised standard.
This is the 21st Century, friends! Cover all the aspects of information security that need to be covered through other ISO27k standards, or indeed other standards outside the remit of SC Give up on Abandon it as a lost cause.
Option 5: continue as at present. This is the straw man as far as I am concerned: it will undoubtedly take SC 27 so long and so much effort to revise that we probably ought to have started working on the next revision before the version was even published!
There appears to be a desire to use the libraries to drive and structure further ISO27k standards development, but the proposal is unclear at least to me at this point. Option 7: deliver changes to as an ongoing sequence of amendments to the published standard. Aside from the not insignificant 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.

This helps keep the standard relevant despite the evolving nature of information security threats, vulnerabilities and impacts, and trends in the use of certain information security controls. It is practically impossible to list all conceivable controls in a general purpose standard. Note: this is merely an illustration. The list of example controls is incomplete and not universally applicable.
Physical and Environmental security[ edit ] Physical access to premises and support infrastructure communications, power, air conditioning etc. The list of people authorized to access secure areas must be reviewed and approved periodically at least once a year by Administration or Physical Security Department, and cross-checked by their departmental managers.
Photography or video recording is forbidden inside Restricted Areas without prior permission from the designated authority. Suitable video surveillance cameras must be located at all entrances and exits to the premises and other strategic points such as Restricted Areas, recorded and stored for at least one month, and monitored around the clock by trained personnel.
Other than in public areas such as the reception foyer, and private areas such as rest rooms, visitors should be escorted at all times by an employee while on the premises. The date and time of entry and departure of visitors along with the purpose of visits must be recorded in a register maintained and controlled by Site Security or Reception. Everyone on site employees and visitors must wear and display their valid, issued pass at all times, and must present their pass for inspection on request by a manager, security guard or concerned employee.
Smoking is forbidden inside the premises other than in designated Smoking Zones.
Human Resource security[ edit ] All employees must be screened prior to employment, including identity verification using a passport or similar photo ID and at least two satisfactory professional references. Additional checks are required for employees taking up trusted positions.
All employees must formally accept a binding confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement concerning personal and proprietary information provided to or generated by them in the course of employment.
