Information is important for organizations and companies and therefore need to be handled with care. IT systems are used to store, represent, process or communicate those information, which results in continuous and challenging IT security demands. Consequently IT security managements should receive adequate attention to stop information leaks or manipulation.
With an Information Security Management System your company takes a holistic approach to IT security. It specifies the requirements for implementation, maintenance, monitoring and improvement of your IT security. An ISMS determines the current state, sets goals to improve the IT security and defines responsibilities, processes as well as measures to reach these goals. Improving your security management is an effective and sustainable way to increase your IT security. Additionally, the improvement is usually connected with positive outcomes for other business divisions like mid- and long-term cost savings. To do so, an ISMS defines basic threats and measures to be implemented in the classical business processes and their IT systems. For instance a binding password management is able to stop issues, that are caused by insecure and easily guessable passwords, which is one of the most common attack vectors.
There are several approaches to implementing an ISMS such as IT-Grundschutz and ISO 27001. We help you to decide which implementation fits your needs best and to take the necessary steps to a certification.
