An Information Security Management System (ISMS) is a system of processes, technology and people that helps you protect and manage your organization’s information security through effective risk management.
The ISMS is a living system that is constantly changing. In ISO 27001, an information security standard, the PDCA cycle is applied. Your organization should establish (plan), implement and operate (do), monitor and review (check), and maintain and improve (act). The ISMS should be reviewed and updated regularly to reflect a changing information security environment and new best practices for information security.
It is important to understand that protecting your information from all security risks is impossible. Therefore organizations must perform a risk assessment to determine which assets need the most protection. Resources need to be effectively allocated towards the protection of those assets.
