Reference: pp188-203
Keywords: Standardization, International Organization for Standardization, Security Management, ISMS
Abstract: Compliance to standards is quite important for numerous reasons, including interoperability, conformity assessment etc. However, even though recent surveys indicate that international security standards do gain acceptance and that a continuously increasing number of organizations adopt them, still the majority do not know them or do not fully implement them. In this paper we facilitate the awareness of security practitioners on ISO security standards and we propose a security framework that is based on them. In order to explain the different layers of the framework and illustrate its applicability we have used as a case study a Payroll and Pensioner Information System.
