The next chart-topping CD: the IT security standards collection
The principal ISO and IEC standards for information technology security are now available for the first time as a collection on a single CD-ROM. Users will get access to IT security standards %%MDASSML%% from evaluating and implementing to maintaining and managing information security in any organization, producing and using information in any form.
“There is no doubt that the protection of our information in systems and over networks is a critical business issue that needs immediate and ongoing attention,” said Ted Humphreys, convener of working group WG 1, requirements, services and guidelines. “Information has become one of the critical commodities in today’s fast-moving, e-biz world.”
The CD offers full text and illustrations of ISO/IEC standards in IT security, providing the user with a practical reference. The goal is to help managers identify issues, assess the levels of risk they face and what they can do to manage the risks.
