Operationalize Your ISMS Program with OneTrust Software for Information Security
An ISMS is an organization’s systematic approach to managing and protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) of information. More specifically, an ISMS includes the policies, procedures, guidelines, resources, activities, and controls implemented to support and secure business assets, most notably data. So, if the goal of a privacy team is to implement Privacy by Design—the proactive embedding of privacy into the design specifications of information technologies, network infrastructure and business practices—then the goal of an ISMS team would be to accomplish that very same thing, but with security—i.e., to implement “Security by Design.”
Naturally then, an effective ISMS necessitates skilled decision-making, documented policies and procedures, awareness training, clear lines of responsibility and asset ownership, risk assessments and risk treatment plans, incident response, vendor management, internal auditing, and more.
In this whitepaper, we’ll discuss ISMS requirements obligations and how products in the OneTrust GRC suite can directly support your compliance efforts.
ISO 270017 is an international standard, developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), that describes how to establish, maintain and continually improve an ISMS. ISO 27001 is one of the most popular and commonly used information security standards, and countless organizations have certified against it for the purpose of demonstrating adequate security to customers, business partners and regulators. The latest revision of the ISO 27001 standard was published in 2013 (ISO/IEC 27001:2013). Organizations that meet the requirements of ISO 27001 can be certified by an accredited certification body after successfully completing an audit against the standard. According to the ISO, over 31,910 organizations held certification in 2018.
ISO 27001 takes a holistic approach to information security, including the development of clear and comprehensive policies and procedures that take the organizational context and scope into account, the appointment of leadership roles with defined responsibilities, ongoing security training and awareness, and more.
