  • Roles and ResponsibilitiesAssets and risk assessment

    The toolkit refers to several different positions, however every organization distributes it repsonsbilities the same way. Is there a comprehensive list of the required/needed areas of responsbilities so I can align that to the titles in my organization?hi, if I have lets say database server, i will consider it as one asset? or I have to add the server as asset and the database (oracle or sql) as another asset? and do I have to do it twice if I have one development database server and one production server? thank you

  • Setting the scope of ISO 27k certification

    In trying to explain what we are doing, I get my audience confused when sometimes I use the term “the system” to refer to the data processing system (in our case an e-commerce application) and sometimes “the system” is the ISMS. When I say “system” to the business unit, Sr. management, the CFO office, etc. I am sure they interpret “system” to mean some information processing system (some information technology “black box”) when in fact it is a really a business process. (I really hoped they were going to drop the term ISMS as, for some reason at least in the U.S., to refer to a business management process as a system seems unnatural.) Do I just have myself confused or would you have some advice how I can disambiguate the “data processing system” from the ISMS that controls it.

  • Can the risk be accepted and the control not applied?

    We are in the initial stages of obtaining our ISO-27001 certification and in doing so we are up to the Pre-certification step. During the pre-certification we reviewed our Statement of Applicability and in particular our Out-of-Scope controls. One control that was found to be a low risk during the Risk Assessment and senior management has agreed to accept the residual risk; and we determined it be out of scope, is being demanded by the auditor to be in-scope. Is that permitted? Based on our scope and boundaries as well as documented exclusions, the control does not come into play. I’m trying to gather some additional information on the determination of in-scope vs. out-of-scope.

  • Which controls to apply?

    Is there any control that I have an obligation to implement? For example, the control 11.3.1 - Using passwords - I have to use this control considering that all employees work with computers? Or depends on the risk assessment?
  • Certify against ISO 27001 2005 or 2013?

    I am currently implementing the ISO 27000:2005 ISMS and hopefully certify in June or July of 2014, I can do it with the 2005 version and I have to do with the 2013? Why in that case I have to make the transition.
