Information Security Forum Releases Standard of Good Practice 2012

Standard is Used by Many Global Organizations as Their De Facto Standard or Primary Reference for Information Security

NEW YORK – September 26, 2012 –– The Information Security Forum (ISF), a global, independent information security body considered the world's leading authority on cyber security and information risk management, has published a major update to its Standard of Good Practice (The Standard) for IT security professionals. The Standard is the industry’s most business-focused, all-in-one guide to information security assurance which encompasses every aspect of information security across four main categories: security governance, security requirements, control framework, and security monitoring and improvement.

The increasing pace of change, changing threat levels, growing dependency on the supply chain and greater demand for efficiency from stakeholders represent some of the many challenges businesses are facing today. The Standard provides extensive coverage of information security topics including those associated with security strategy, incident management, business continuity, resilience and crisis management. These topics present practical advice that enables organizations to improve their resilience against a broad range of threats and low probability, high-impact events that can threaten the success and sometimes even the survival of the organization.

“Never before have organizations had to contend with such a diverse range of factors that can significantly influence the success of their business, and in some cases, even threaten its survival,” said Steve Durbin, Global Vice President, ISF. “With authoritative guidance based on the practices of the ISF’s global Membership, and up-to-date coverage of hot topics including cyber security, consumerization of IT and securing the supply chain, The Standard is the international reference source for managing information risk which can be used as part of an organization’s overall approach to enterprise risk management.”

Organizations around the world use the The Standard and related tools and services to: • Rapidly adopt new and emerging technologies more securely by managing associated risks • Exploit business opportunities while maintaining the organization’s overall risk appetite • Improve resilience and competitiveness as the business environment continues to change • Increase confidence in the organization’s ability to meet legal, regulatory and contractual obligations • Prepare for and manage major incidents that can have a significant impact on the organization

The Standard is updated annually, reflecting the rapid pace of change in technology and its use and an organizations’ need to respond to escalating security threats from activities such as cybercrime, ‘hacktivism’, insiders and espionage. As a result, the Standard helps the ISF and its Members to maintain their position at the leading edge of good practice in information security.

The Standard is available at no cost to ISF member companies and can be purchased by non-members. For more information on The Standard or any aspect of the ISF, please contact Steve Durbin at [email protected] or via phone at +1 (347) 767-6772.
