Welcome to the first edition of the ISO17799 newsletter, designed to keep you abreast of news and developments with respect to 17799 and information security. The newsletter will comprise a combination of inclusive articles and the identification of useful and topical sources on the web.
This initial edition covers:
POSITIONING OR CERTIFICATION?
A very individual question for each organization is how far to go along the ISO17799 path. For some, nothing less than full certification will do, due to a variety of possible reasons. For many, however, a positioning brief is adequate.... reaching a position of compliance and then monitoring the market and industry carefully.
For most, the correct posture will be self evident. However, for those unsure of how far to proceed, the online presentation at: ISO17799 Introduction may be helpful. This presents ISO17799 in the context of past, present and possible future.
