First off, if you’re worried about your information security, well done: that’s a good thing. Your concern demonstrates that you’re not an ‘it-won’t-happen-to-us’ organisation, but are in fact an organisation that is aware of the threat and knows that it’s time to do something.
Give yourself a pat on the back and read on.
Step 1: Know your business
It’s vital that you remember that information security isn’t an IT issue but a business imperative. If you want to start protecting your information in a more effective manner, then you need to gather information on how you currently do things and know the details about how your business operates. You’ll find that if you call up a specialist organisation like as IT Governance you’ll be asked questions like:
- What is the size of your business?
- What are your main functions?
- What do you currently have in place in technical and management terms?
- What are your current resources and knowledge?
- What’s the reason for the decision to improve security and who is driving it?
- What is your budget?
- Do you have a timescale?
If you have answers prepared for each of these questions, it will be much easier to source what’s needed.
Step 2: Look at your options
There is a wide range of options when looking at implementing effective information security but I’m not going to list them all.
I know, I know, you’re sitting there cursing my name for not given you the options but hold on: it gets better.
ISO 27001 is the best solution for information security. Its list of benefits is long, but the most important factor is that ISO 27001 takes the whole organisation into account, leaving little room for slip ups.
You both want, and need, ISO 27001.
That’s step 2 complete.
