President Obama has declared that the “cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation” and that “America’s economic prosperity in the 21st century will depend on cybersecurity.”
What all organizations must do
According to the Whitehouse.gov: Our Nation’s cybersecurity strategy is twofold: (1) improve our resilience to cyber incidents and (2) reduce the cyber threat.
Cyber resilience is, really, part of a wider business resilience strategy. While development of a broad business resilience strategy should fit within an organisation’s enterprise risk management framework, there is no reason to delay dealing with cyber resilience because a wider business resilience strategy has still to be developed.
ISO/IEC 27001 is the world’s only internationally-recognised cyber security management system standard against which an entity’s Information Security Management System can be independently audited and certified. Compliance to ISO27001 is the basis for meeting all other information security-related regulatory compliance requirements, such as:
- PIPEDA, etc.
ISO27001 is also closely allied with the Code of Practice ISO/IEC 27002 (formerly ISO/IEC17799).
“A growing number of US organisations, across all sectors of the economy, are deploying ISO27001 to ensure that their cyber security defences are robust,” said IT Governance CEO, Alan Calder. “We are delighted that we can make the ANSI adoptions of these incredibly important standards available to our customers, and at such attractive prices!”
