Consequently, information security incidents are bound to occur to some extent, even in organizations that take their information security extremely seriously. Scope and purpose The standard covers the processes for managing information security events, incidents and vulnerabilities. It cross-references that section and explain its relationship to the ISO27k eForensics standards.
Structure and content The standard lays out a process with 5 key stages: Prepare to deal with incidents e. The standard provides template reporting forms for information security events, incidents and vulnerabilities. It describes an information security incident management process consisting of five phases, and says how to improve incident management. Content: the incident management process is described in five phases closely corresponding to the five phases in the first edition: Plan and prepare: establish an information security incident management policy, form an Incident Response Team etc.
Status: part 1 was published in The revision is at 2nd Working Draft stage. It covers the Plan and Prepare and Lessons Learned phases of the process laid out in part 1 - the start and end.
Content: after the usual preamble sections come 8 main clauses: Establishing information security incident management policy Updating of information security and risk management policies Creating information security incident management plan Establishing an Incident Response Team [a.
Status: part 2 was published in The revision is at Working Draft stage. This document is not concerned with non-ICT incident response operations such as loss of paper-based documents. Status: at Draft International Standard stage and should be published soon in ! Personal comments Notwithstanding the title, the standards actually concern incidents affecting IT systems and networks although the underlying principles apply also to incidents affecting other forms of information such as paperwork, knowledge, intellectual property, trade secrets and personal information.
That, to me, represents yet another opportunity squandered: ISO27k includes but goes beyond the IT world of cybersecurity. How are organizations meant to handle incidents such as fraud and piracy where any IT element is incidental? The is another ISO27k standard that would benefit from an explicit description of the information risks being addressed through the incident management process.
Since it is literally impossible to detect and respond to every incident, a proportion of the risk has to be accepted e. Also, the response to a major incident may well involve invoking business continuity arrangements, hence this standard should integrate with ISO etc.
