So far, I’ve covered:

  • Annex A Control: Communication Security

This standard is about creating an Information Management System. The goal of an ISMS is to protect the confidentiality & integrity of data while ensuring availability. You can apply this system to any type of organization of any size. It’s based on the same core high-level structure as other management systems. The main clauses include:

  • Context of the organization

  • Leadership

  • Planning

  • Support

  • Operation

  • Performance Evaluation

  • Improvement

The second part of the standard is about controls. They are listed in Annex A, and are grouped into different categories. They provide organizations with a set of tools that can be used to achieve the objectives of their management system. The list is not exhaustive and more controls do exist and can be implemented. Regardless, it’s important to understand the controls mentioned in Annex A and determine if they are applicable or useful to your organization.

Who this course is for:

  • This course is about ISO 27000 family of standards. It’s for people who want to increase their knowledge about this family of standards. I will be covering various clauses in this standard.
