Like any other commercial property Information is valuable and highly significant for enterprises to be maintained and Confidentiality, Integrity, and availability at a desirable and measurable level have to be guaranteed. As the use of communication networks and the internet increases Information security has turned into a big deal for different enterprises throughout the world. Utilizing computer networks specifically the internet has made companies’ Commercial transactions undergo substantial changes and life way easier, however, has led to the risk of revelation and loss of data. As a matter of fact, stuff that is providing enterprises with advantages is on the other hand turning into vulnerable points for opportunistic attacks. In the age of the Internet, protecting our information has become just as important as protecting our property. Information security is the practice of protecting both physical and digital information from destruction or unauthorized access.
Every day we take steps to protect the things that are important to us. We set the alarm systems on our homes, put our valuables in safes, and lock our cars. The reasons we do these things are simple – we don’t want people we don’t know or trust to get a hold of our valuables, and we don’t want those valuables to come to any harm. But what have you done for your most important asset, information?
* Do you know how much your information is worth?
* Do know what is your loss if your information compromises?
* Are you sure that your information is secure and nobody has access to them?
On average, 4,000 ransomware attacks occurred per day in 2016 according to a report from the FBI in June 2016. Diving deeper, ransomware attacks on businesses have become more frequent as well. Between January and September 2016, ransomware attacks on businesses increased from once every 2 minutes to once every 40 seconds according to Kaspersky.
Under the circumstances, the presence of an ISMS (Information Technology Management System) for every enterprise is a necessity, and accepting that is a leading resolution.
But unfortunately, implementation of Information Security is not so simple. Many organizations facing a lot of problems in implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS), which results in a halt to project execution or delays and imposition of unforeseen costs. Even the vast majority of those who eventually implement the system and even had got the ISO27001 certification do not have the right security level. We have searched and obtained the main causes of these challenges and the lack of real security has defined indicators for measuring the readiness of the organization for the successful implementation of ISMS. In fact, by identifying the main reasons for not achieving the goals of Information Security in different organizations, the challenges of organizations in the implementation of this system are identified and after recognizing these challenges, the success key factors for the implementation of ISMS have been derived and finally, we have developed a model for assessing the readiness level.
In our model, we define Information Security objectives, identifying challenges and key drivers for successful implementation of ISMS & developing a model to assess & prepare the organization for the successful implementation of ISMS.
Terminus System has always been seeking to offer a method for ISMS implementation that meets the needs and objectives of any organization.
With this in mind, we offer our unique methodology so that the security solution of any organization suits their needs in addition to being compliant with the standards.
In general, there are five basic approaches to security analysis of organizations, and to secure and eliminate the hazards they face:
* Control approach like ISO27001
* Process approach like the ISM3 model
* Risk-based approach like ISO27005
* Security recommendations from product manufacturers such as MS Baseline Security Analyzer or Cisco ISE
* Best Practices
The methodology developed by Terminus-System brings together the best possible level of security for your organization by using all these approaches at the same time. Using this methodology, we examine the security status of the organization in the following areas:
The structure of this unique methodology is based on four phases of designing, implementing, monitoring, and improving the Deming cycle in 23 steps.
