Charter

WG11.1 - Information Security Management est. 1985, revised 1992, reconfirmed 2006

Aims

As management, at any level, may be increasingly held answerable for the reliable and secure operation of the information systems and services in their respective organisations in the same manner as they are for financial aspects of the enterprise, the Working Group will promote all aspects related to the Management of Information Security.

These aspects cover a wide range, from purely managerial aspects concerning Information Security, (like upper management awareness and responsibility for establishing and maintaining the necessary policy documents), to more technical aspects (like risk analysis, disaster recovery and other technical tools) to support the Information Security management process.

Scope

Statement Of Case

There is a growing trend for senior business management to be held answerable for the reliable and secure operation of their information systems, as they are for control of their financial aspects. Information Security is, and should always be, upper management responsibility. Information security professionals and WG 11.1 in particular, should therefore be responsible for the development of all types of tools, mechanisms and methods to support top management in this new responsibility.
