3 5. Introduction Information is an asset which, like other important business assets, has value to an organisation and consequently needs to be suitably protected. Information security protects information from a wide range of threats in order to ensure business continuity, minimise business damage and maximise return on investments and opportunities. Information can exist in many forms. It can be printed or written on paper, stored electronically, transmitted by post or using electronic means, shown on films or spoken in conversation. Whatever form it takes, or means by which it is shared or stored, it must always be appropriately protected. Information security is characterised as the preservation of confidentiality (information is only available to authorised persons), integrity (safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods) and availability (ensuring that authorised users have access to information and associated assets as and when required). Information security is achieved by implementing a suitable set of controls (following industry best practise), which will be policies, practices, procedures, organisational structures and software functions. In addition to the external audits undertaken by xxx, the Trust s Information Security Officer will also conduct (internal) audits. The approach is to audit each site at least once within a 12 month period (see Appendix 1). Exemplar_ISMS Audit Process V1.0.rtf <Date> Page 3 of 14

4 6. Internal Audit Policy Statement It is the policy of the Trust that all aspects of the NHS TRUST Information Security Management System (ISMS) at all sites, be subject to an internal audit at least once every 12 months. This will help ensure that not only policies and procedures are being applied but that new best practice can be gathered and applied. 7. Audit Process 7.1 Overview The audit process involves the Auditor(s), in discussion with staff members in the area under review, identifying whether existing procedures are complied with and at the same time identifying whether the procedures are adequate. This will involve observing work in progress as well as sampling previous records. The auditor(s) will also gauge overall security awareness of the staff members interviewed. Audit Checklists, generated by the Trust s Information Security Officer will be used, an example is shown in Appendix 4. These documents are used for guidance only and will not limit the enquiries of an auditor who is following the audit trail. In addition the Audit Checklists may be used to record relevant information during the course of the audit. At the end of the audit, a short closing meeting will be held between the auditor(s) and auditee(s) to review the findings and issues identified. A senior member of line management (i.e. departmental manager or above) may be invited to participate, if appropriate. The audit frequency strategy is shown in Appendix 1. An Audit Checklist example is shown in Appendix 4. An example of the Calendar of Events is shown in Appendix 2. Please note, as well as IT Information Security audits, the calendar will show audits that cover certain areas of Information Security that are conducted by other functions (eg ISO9000 audits). Appendix 3 is an example of the Record of Events that have taken place. Exemplar_ISMS Audit Process V1.0.rtf <Date> Page 4 of 14

5 7.2 Reporting Audit Findings Audit results and the areas/personnel/documentation covered are recorded during the audit. Observations will be recorded and subsequently will be classified by the auditor, as either a recommendation or as an observation. The Auditor will ensure that each recommendation has a unique identification number (the audit number followed by a second sequential number). This information will be added to the Internal Audit log. The Department Manager will sign to accept the recommendation. At the end of the audit the Auditor will generate an Audit Report. This Report will consist of any Audit Checklists and notes, copies of any observations, copies of any recommendations, if applicable, a summary of the audit findings and a front page. The front page will detail the Area/Function audited, the unique audit number, the date and time the audit was carried out, the auditor(s), auditee(s) and a list of attachments. An urgent Recommendation indicates that an aspect of the ISMS is either not defined or not being adhered to in any way and hence a risk to the business. Such a recommendation would need to be addressed as a matter of urgency in the case of an external audit being conducted, and a BS7799 certificate being held, the registration body would consider withdrawing the certificate if corrective action was not undertaken within strictly agreed timescales. The Auditor may also see fit to raise an Observation which is not a firm recommendation but rather a suggestion for improvement. Upon the next visit, the Auditor will expect the observation to have been taken on board (if appropriate) thus signifying ongoing improvement to the ISMS. Any non-site specific observations will be shared with other sites. 7.3 Following Up Corrective Actions Once the Information Security Officer has received the completed non-conformities the Audit Schedule is then updated to show when a Verification Audit is required. All points subject to recommendation are re-audited. The purpose of this verification (follow up) audit is to ensure that the defined corrective actions have been successfully implemented and are effective. The auditor who raised the original recommendation normally conducts this audit. Once objective evidence has been found confirming the successful implementation and effectiveness of the actions, the recommendation will be closed and signed off by the auditor and the department representative. The Information Security Officer will review the recommendation and authorise its closure. Exemplar_ISMS Audit Process V1.0.rtf <Date> Page 5 of 14
