Newly released PAS 555 standard defines effective cyber security

23/05/2013

IT Governance, the single-source provider of cyber security products and services, has announced that the new PAS 555:2013 Cyber Security Risk Governance and Management standard is available to order from www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-1356.aspx.    
 
Whilst many related standards tend to focus on ‘the how’, PAS 555:2013 focuses on ‘the what’. It doesn’t specify actions, but defines what effective cyber security looks like. This gives organisations the flexibility to choose their own approach to cyber security, whether that be through the use of other standards such as ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 27032 or through their own internal best practices.
 
PAS 555 applies to any organisation that wishes to gain confidence in their management and governance of cyber security.
 
A copy of the standard can be ordered online www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-1356.aspx.   
 
In addition to purchasing this standard, SMEs should consider commissioning a cyber security risk assessment  which aims to establish the effectiveness of their cyber security defences and the controls they need to put in place.
