What is ISMSPaket?

ISMSPaket represents implementation of information security management system to a qualitatively higher level. Such implemented information security management system provides customers with a proof of level of your provided information security services according to international standards.
Implementation of ISMSPaket serves as a precondition for successful certification of information security management system in accordance with international standard ISO/IEC 27001 or criteria of PCI DSS, etc. Our consulting services are based on a quality management process but also take into account the conditions of the customer. Implementation is always based upon the project which has several basic milestones. An essential starting point for each ISMS implementation project is so called situational analysis of ISMS. The aim of the situational analysis is the evaluation of the ISMS status within the organization, including the status of process management according to current legislation, standards (e.g. ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 27011, ISO/IEC 27099 etc.) or criteria such as PCI DSS, SAS 70 etc. Based on the results from analysis we will suggest a schedule of work that need to be completed for successful implementation of all processes according to above mentioned standards and subsequent certification. Part of the implementation is concerned with design of a process model for information security management, including the identification of links between processes, creation of necessary documentation and our assistance during implementation, measurements and analysis of individual processes in practice according to CMM model.

For whom is ISMS suitable?

  • ISMS is suitable for all organizations which provide and operate services for customers, provide outsourcing, process clients' data, process personal data etc.
  • The basic objective of ISMS is protection of critical organization's assets in terms of their availability, confidentiality and integrity to ensure business continuity
  • ISMS is suitable where organization needs to protect its assets including information, image, know-how and reputation against internal and external attackers.

ISMS – based on ...?

  • ISMS is process-oriented platform for information security management which frequently uses two complementary standards ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002. These standards define basic and minimal requirements for ISMS and also provide basic guidance for the implementation of ISMS system
  • For successful implementation and effective operation of ISMS mere compliance with standard's requirements is not enough. The system should be also implemented on the operational level and also selected security measures should be implemented. Standard ISO/IEC 27002 is most commonly used to accomplish that.
  • Depending on the industry and the field in which is ISMS deployed, sometimes arises a requirement for the ISMS implementation according to other industry standards, such as criteria of PCI DSS, SAS70 or standard ISO/IEC 27011 or ISO/IEC 27099
