What is an ISMS? (detailed): An Information Security Management System (ISMS) consists of the policies, procedures, guidelines, and associated resources and activities, collectively managed by an organization, in the pursuit of ensuring confidentiality, integrity and availability of information assets.  An ISMS is a systematic approach for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving an organization’s information security program to achieve business objectives.  It is based upon risk assessment and the organization’s risk acceptance levels designed to effectively treat and manage risks.  The following fundamental principles also contribute to the successful implementation of an ISMS:

  1. awareness of the need for information security;
  2. assignment of responsibility for information security;
  3. incorporating management commitment and the interests of stakeholders;
  4. leveraging effective asset inventories;
  5. risk assessments determining appropriate controls to reach acceptable levels of risk;
  6. security incorporated as an essential element of information networks and systems;
  7. active prevention and detection of information security incidents;
  8. ensuring a comprehensive approach to information security management and regulatory compliance; and
  9. continual reassessment of information security and making of modifications as appropriate.
