1 ISO 27001: Information Security and the Road to Certification White paper Abstract An information security management system (ISMS) is an essential part of an organization s defense against cyberattacks and data breaches. ISO/IEC provides a critical framework for the development and implementation of an effective ISMS. Certification to ISO/IEC can reduce overall information security risks, ease compliance with applicable security regulations and requirements, and help organizations foster the development of a culture of security.

3 Introduction In the 21st century, digitized data is as essential to everyday life as air and water. Unfortunately, cyberattacks and breaches of digitized data are becoming all too common, increasing the risk of fraud for businesses, institutions and ordinary consumers, and inflicting a huge price on those affected. Even more frightening is the risk to critical infrastructure elements, such as electric and power generation facilities, where cyberattacks could potentially bring major cities and communities to a standstill. An effective information security management system (ISMS) can help enterprises of all sizes defend themselves against cyberattacks and other malicious data breaches. The standard ISO/IEC 27001, Information security management systems, provides a detailed framework for the development, implementation and maintenance of just such a management system, and certification to ISO/IEC can represent an important step in an organization s efforts to protect its IT infrastructure and to secure digitized data in its possession. This white paper discusses the origins and structure of ISO/IEC 27001, describes the ISO/IEC certification process, and details the potential benefits of ISO/IEC certification. What is ISO/IEC 27001? ISO/IEC is an internationallyrecognized standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (or ISO). The standard specifies the requirements for implementing and maintaining an effective ISMS to protect against the root causes of information security risks. Organizations that achieve ISO/IEC certification strengthen their ability to protect themselves against cyberattacks and help prevent unwanted access to sensitive or confidential information. First published in 2005, ISO/IEC is based on BS 7799 Part 2, Information Security Management Systems Specification with guidance for use, issued by the British Standards Institute in As originally published, ISO/ IEC was largely based on the plan-do-check-act (PDCA) model then widely used by other management system standards. However, a 2013 revision of the standard adopted the framework detailed in Annex SL of the Consolidated Supplement of the ISO/ IEC Directives. Annex SL mandates the use of a common structure and terminology in all new and newly revised management system standards, and maintains the PDCA model only as a basic principle. ISO/IEC 27001:2013 also emphasizes the importance of measuring and evaluating the effectiveness of an ISMS, and includes a section on managing outsourced IT services, since a number of organizations choose to partner with outside companies for IT support rather than manage it themselves. The scope of ISO/IEC is intended to cover all types of information regardless of its form. These forms can include digitized data, documents, drawings, photographs, electronic communications and transmissions, and recordings. 3 ISO/IEC TÜV SÜD

4 The Structure and Requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2013 After adopting the structure and terminology detailed in Annex SL of the Consolidated Supplement of the Directives, ISO/IEC 27001:2013 looks considerably different from the original 2005 edition of the standard. In addition, the standard has been streamlined to eliminate redundant elements and to provide greater flexibility in the application of its requirements. Here is a brief summary of the clauses of ISO/IEC 27001:2013: CLAUSE NUMBER Clause 0: Introduction Clause 1: Scope CLAUSE DESCRIPTION The standard follows a process approach for the implementation of an ISMS. The 2013 edition deletes specific references to the plan-do-check-act model. The standard specifies general requirements for an ISMS that can be implemented in an organization of any type or size. Clause 2: Normative references ISO/IEC 27000:2014, Information technology Security techniques Information security management systems Overview and vocabulary, is the only mandatory normative reference for ISO/IEC Clause 3: Terms and definitions Clause 4: Context of the organization Clause 5: Leadership Clause 6: Planning Clause 7: Support Clause 8: Operation Clause 9: Performance evaluation Clause 10: Improvement The standard references ISO/IEC for all terms and definitions. The standard requires that an organization evaluate and account for all internal and external factors that could affect its ability to successfully implement an ISMS. Such factors could include formal governance policies, contractual and legal obligations, regulatory requirements, environmental conditions and organizational culture. This clause of the standard requires an organization s senior management to establish an information security policy, to provide overall leadership by assigning responsibility and authority to implement that policy, and to actively promote an organization-wide understanding of the importance of information security. The planning clause involves assessing an organization s specific risks regarding information security and developing a treatment plan to address those risks. This clause references Annex A for possible risk control mechanisms to be considered, but an organization is ultimately responsible for the determination of the specific controls necessary to address the risks it identifies. The standard requires an organization to provide the necessary resources to establish, implement, maintain and continuously improve its ISMS. It also requires the development and control of documented information about the ISMS. This clause addresses the execution of the policies, practices and processes that are covered in the earlier clauses, and the requirement to maintain suitable records that document the results. It also stipulates the conduct of performance assessments at planned intervals. Per the requirements of this clause, an organization must monitor, measure, analyze and evaluate its ISMS at planned intervals to assess its suitability and effectiveness. This final clause embraces the concept of continual improvement and the importance of identifying nonconformities, and taking corrective action to improve the effectiveness of the ISMS. TÜV SÜD ISO/IEC

5 In addition to these ten clauses, ISO/IEC 27001:2013 also includes Annex A, entitled Reference Control Objectives and Controls. This Annex identifies 114 specific controls that are taken directly from ISO/IEC 27002, Information security management. These controls are categorized under one of 14 different Code of practice for information security controls, as follows: ANNEX NUMBER A.5: Information security policies (2 controls) A.6: Organization of information security (7 controls) A.7: Human resource security (6 controls) A.8: Asset management (10 controls) A.9: Access control (14 controls) A.10: Cryptography (2 controls) A.11: Physical and environmental security (15 controls) A.12: Operations security (14 controls) A.13: Communication security (7 controls) A.14: System acquisition, development and maintenance (13 controls) A.15: Supplier relationships (5 controls) A.16: Information security incident management (7 controls) A.17: Information security aspects of business continuity management (4 controls) A.18: Compliance (8 controls) ANNEX DESCRIPTION Covers how information security policies are written, reviewed and revised. Details how responsibilities are assigned; also includes controls for mobile devices and teleworking. Addresses controls before, during, and after employment. Encompasses hard and soft assets, including information classification and media handling. Covers all aspects of access, such as access control requirements, user access management, and system and application access and control. Addresses encryption and key management controls. Details controls applicable to secure areas and equipment. Includes controls applied to IT security operations, such as control of operational software, protection from malware, backup, logging and monitoring, technical vulnerability management and audit considerations. Encompasses controls related to network security, segregation, network services, transfer of information and messaging. Addresses controls for security requirements of information systems and security in development and support processes. Covers controls for monitoring suppliers throughout the supply chain. Includes controls for reporting security events and weaknesses, response procedures and the collection of evidence. Details controls required for the planning of secure business continuity, including procedures, verification practices and system redundancy. Applies to the controls needed to identify applicable security laws and regulations and the conduct of information security reviews. As previously noted, the controls identified in Annex A are offered as possible risk control mechanisms for addressing the requirements found in Clause 6 of the standard. However, an organization is required to make a full and independent determination of the specific control mechanisms that are appropriate to address the specific risks it faces. 5 ISO/IEC TÜV SÜD

6 The Road to ISO/IEC Certification Implementing an ISMS according to the requirements of ISO/IEC and obtaining certification includes a number of specific steps. Of course, not all ISMS implementation efforts are identical, since individual organizations will have unique issues to address, and vary in their degree of system readiness. However, the following steps apply to most organizations, regardless their industry or level of preparedness: TÜV SÜD ISO/IEC

7 The Benefits of ISO/IEC Certification Organizations that certify their ISMS to the requirements of ISO/IEC gain a number of important benefits, including the following: Regulatory compliance An ISO/IEC certified ISMS can help an organization meet the legal and regulatory requirements applicable in many jurisdictions, as well as contractual requirements for doing business with other entities. Systematic approach ISO/IEC provides a formal, systematic approach to data security, increasing the level of protection of private and confidential information. Reduced risk Greater data security can result in a reduction in overall business risks and help to mitigate consequences when breaches actually occur. Reduced costs By reducing the risk of security breaches, ISO/IEC certification can actually lower the total costs associated with IT security, as well as the costly consequences associated with data breaches. Market advantage Organizations that have received ISO/IEC certification clearly signal their commitment to the security of confidential information, and can enjoy an important advantage in the marketplace against non-certified competitors. Conclusion The prevalence of cyberattacks and data security breaches are increasing daily and now threaten organizations of every size and in every industry. Such breaches compromise the security of private or sensitive data and can result in significant financial damage and reputational harm. In cases involving critical infrastructure elements, data security breaches can affect the safety of millions of people, and threaten the well-being of communities of all sizes. An ISMS is a critical element in the effort to control or mitigate the risk associated with cyberattacks against digitized data. ISO/IEC provides a formal framework for the implementation and maintenance of an effective ISMS, and organizations that achieve ISO/IEC certification can significantly reduce the risks and consequences associated with data breaches. Finally, ISO/IEC is compatible with other management systems standards, easing the auditing process for organizations certified to multiple management systems standards.
