Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) and IT Frameworks
ISMS and IT Frameworks provide the guidance companies need to build strong, robust Cybersecurity Programs. Take a look at this Wikipedia article that gives a great high level overview of several ISMS and widely adopted Frameworks (like COBOT, ITIL, NIST, and ISO27002).
IT Security Standards
Is your company looking to do eCommerce on the Internet? Or, do you want your customers to pay their bills online? If so, how can the credit card companies and your customers know that its safe to do business with you?
That’s where IT Security and Regulatory Compliance Standards come in. Many of these standards offer a certification program to enable you to show your vendors and customers that you have satisfied the requirement they have set forth.
Which one is right for your business? Take a look some of the most common standards:
Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard (PCI DSS or just PCI)
Sarbanes Oxley (SOX)
Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
Home of the GLBA (FTC.gov)
