ISO27001 compliance for Windows

IT Governance : 17 February, 2009  (New Product)
IT Governance releases guide to the implementation of ISO27001 for Windows environments
Independent UK compliance expert IT Governance has announced the publication of Implementing ISO27001 in a Windows Environment, a step-by-step guide on implementing this major security standard, written with the aim of helping project managers, IT and security staff develop a shared understanding of what controls are appropriate to mitigate identified risks - and how, within the Windows environment, to apply them.

Information security management standard (ISMS) ISO/IEC 27001 encourages organisations to bring technical decision making about information security controls into a business-driven risk-based framework. This challenges all parties involved in information security management to communicate effectively, especially between technical and non-technical staff about effective security control implementation. Of course, as Windows is the most widely-used operating system, this challenge must be met within that context.

Concise, straightforward and practical, Implementing ISO27001 in a Windows Environment thus fills a major gap in the guidance literature for ISO27001, as it has been designed from the outset as a fully comprehensive, step-by-step guide through the critical steps for implementing ISO27001 in a Microsoft Windows environment.

The guide's author, Brian Honan, is widely recognised as an industry expert on information security and, in particular, on the ISO27001 information security standard. A member of the Information Systems Security Association, the Irish Information Security Forum, and the Information Systems Audit and Control Association, Brian established Ireland's first ever national Computer Security Incident Response Team. A prominent member of the global IT security community, Brian is also a member of the Irish Computer Society, and was also a founding member of the Irish Corporate Windows NT User Group.

"Written in non-technical language and in a style that makes its content accessible to non-technical ISO27001 project managers, Brian's invaluable study will give IT security practitioners the information and knowledge they need," says Alan Calder, Chief Executive of the book's publishers, IT Governance.

"It also clearly outlines the business and information security management context, and provides practical configuration guidance on the wide range of controls that should be implemented in the Windows environment. It is a book every ISO27001 manager, every MCSE and every IT manager should own."
