An Explanation Of What An ISO 27002 Security Assessment Is
This Information Security Assessment is one in which the ISO 27002 standard is used as a guideline for determining the viability of a system’s or network’s security measures, practices, and procedures. Essentially a gap measurement, we will compare the state of your company’s systems and data security against the ISO 27002 standard. Once done, any ways or areas in which the standard has not been met will be reported to you for future correction, (something with which we can also assist through services such as ISO 27002 training).
The ISO 27002 standard for information security is the most respected and accepted standard in the Information Technology and Network Security industries. It addresses an extensive array of 14 areas of examination, detailed below:
- Information Security Policies
- Organization of Information Security
- Human Resource Security
- Asset Management
- Access Control
- Physical/Environmental Security
- Operation Security
- Communication Security
- System Acquisition
- Supplier Relationships
- Information Security Incident Management
- Information Security Aspects of Business Continuity Management
