Included in this issue are the following topics:
OBTAINING THE ISO 17799 STANDARD
The first question we usually receive is "Where can I get hold of a copy of the standard?" The standard itself is available from:
BSI ELECTRONIC SHOP
This is the ISO17799/BS7799 Electronic Shop. Essentially it is an online vending site for downloadable copies of the standard.
ISO17799 STARTER KIT
This is the web site for the ISO17799 Toolkit. This downloadable package was created to help those taking the first steps towards addressing ISO17799. It includes both parts of the standard, audit checklists, a roadmap, a set of ISO17799 compliant security policies, and a range of other items and materials.
