Title: Understanding the information security better: ISO 27001

Understanding the information security better
ISO 27001

  • The present day organizations and companies in
    Qatar rely heavily on information security
    industry for the management of their businesses
    and other main applications like financial
    databases and so on. But that is not the extent
    to which the IT industry works.
  • No. the IT industry, in addition to providing the
    means for enhancing the company performance, the
    IT also takes care of the security and the
    integrity of the company. This service is
    considered life-saving on many accounts as the
    data and information is extremely crucial to any
    company even outside the business fields in
    Qatar.

Information security
  • If you have a business company in Qatar then
    youre probably aware of the fact that the
    correct information in the hands of the right,
    authorized person can make the stunning
    difference in everything be it success, profit,
    loss, failure.
  • There are 3 major aspects to any information
    security company these are the confidentiality,
    integrity and availability. Once youve done away
    with the information security basics, now youve
    got to go through the undeniable struggle of
    managing it and keeping it up to date so that it
    may function properly and provide the best
    results possible.

Information security
  • The information security management system (ISMS)
    deals with the overall management of the client
    companys aspects based on the risk factors and
    other such related features and one of the ISMS
    is known as ISO 27001.

5
The notorious ISMS
  • The ISO 27001, in Qatar, is a quite popular
    international level standard focusing on the
    information security management and while it has
    faced rejection from over 12 thousand
    organizations but still being used by more than
    thousands of people worldwide and thus it can be
    assumed, based on its popularity and usage, that
    it is indeed a very convenient and highly secure
    ISMS.
  • The ISO 27001, in Qatar, and practically
    everywhere in the world as it was developed
    keeping in mind the overall problems and not
    specific countries or areas, has two parts the
    ISO/IEC 27001 and the ISO/IEC 27002.

6
The ISO/IEC 27001
  • It is the basic foundation which is used in the
    certification of the ISMS and it is something
    which is related to the management programs,
    usually for the security of the company and the
    data management of the company and the risk
    management, which is generally also the security
    of the company.
  • It is a very vast ISM as it has very detailed
    explanations and rules addressing almost all the
    crucial factors for the information security. It
    has 11 security domains which deal with the
    safety and integrity, 39 security objectives and
    133 controls making it a very well balanced
    security system.

7
The ISO/IEC 27002
  • This can be identified as the code which is used
    in the basic practicing of the security
    management.
  • This is solely a practice engine which is used to
    make individuals reach perfection in the coding
    for the information security management and
    unlike the ISO 27001, in Qatar it is not used
    for administering any certification what so ever.
