9 Information Security Management Framework Flow Regulatory Requirements and Security Standards help define the Organizations Security Environment. This environment dictates the Organizations Security Directive, which dictates the ultimate Information Security Management Framework. Regulatory Requirements Security Standards Business Initiatives Technology Direction Business and Security Environment Organizational Directive for Information Security Information Security Framework (Security Controls) Technologies and Solutions

10 Identification of Regulations and Acts Identification of Information Security Drivers Identification of Regulations and Acts Introduction to Security Standards Understanding of Security Controls Technology Solutions Assisting in Regulatory Compliance

11 Significant Regulations and Acts Some of the more significant security regulations and acts include: Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Sarbanes Oxley Act (SOX) European Union Data Protection Directive (EUDPD) Personal Data Act Computer Misuse Act Data Protection Act 21 CFR Part 11 BASEL II Various State Security Breach Laws

13 Introduction to Security Standards Identification of Information Security Drivers Identification of Regulations and Acts Introduction to Security Standards Understanding Security Controls Technology Solutions Assisting in Regulatory Compliance

14 Value Proposition of Security Standards Security Standards: Provide outlines of accepted best practice for security management Provide guidelines for the implementation of security measures Provide a framework for the management of information, network, and system security within an organization Provide a suggested code of practice Integrate security measures into an overall security architecture Can be used by organizations of all sizes, industries, and sectors Security Standard compliance is NOT required by law, though some contracts now require Certifications.

15 Compliance and Certification To achieve compliance the organization must implement measures to address all control objectives. Formal certification is usually achieved through a formal audit conducted by a certified independent auditor. Certification offers internal and external confidence in the Information Security Management Framework. Certification demonstrates good governance and can provide evidence of due diligence for some requirements for regulatory compliance.

16 Compliance Achievement Process Initiation Analysis Implementation Compliance Recognise the need Get management support Appoint Program Manager Scoping Decide on suitable scope Define scope Agree with Certification Body (formal certification only) Gap Analysis Identify existing controls Review existing documents Identify gaps between these and Standard requirements Risk Assessment Identify assets within scope Identify threats to assets Asses level of risk Identify treatment options Security Improvement Managed program for addressing security issues Typical activities Security policies and procedures Security awareness training Internet and usage Laptop and PDA security Backup procedures Firewall configuration review Penetration Testing Review of user accounts Demonstrate Compliance Document ISMS Policy Justify claim in documented Statement of Applicability Formal Certification Documentation Review and Pre Audit (2-3 days) Formal Audit (4-8 days)

17 Industry Accepted Security Standards Some of the more commonly accepted and implemented standards include: International Standard, ISO/IEC 17799:2005 (ISO 17799) Australian Standard, AS/NZS :2003 (AS 7799) Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Standard Common Criteria for IT Security Evaluation (ISO 9000) NIST Computer Security Standards
