    What is ISO/IEC 27035-1:2016?

    ISO/IEC 27035-1:2016 presents straightforward concepts and phases of information security incident management and combines these concepts with principles in a structured approach to detecting, reporting, assessing, and responding to incidents, and applying lessons learnt. The Standard also covers the processes for managing information security events, incidents and vulnerabilities.

    The Standard outlines the perceptions and principles behind information security incident management. It defines an information security incident management process suggesting how to improve incident management:

    1. Plan and prepare: information security incident management policy, form an Incident Response Team etc.
    2. Detection and reporting: spot and account for “events” that might be or turn into incidents.
    3. Assessment and decision: assess the condition to determine whether it is in fact an incident.
    4. Responses: contain, eliminate, recover from, and forensically analyse the incident, where appropriate.
    5. Lessons learnt: make methodical improvements to the organization’s management of information risks as a consequence of incidents experienced.

    Why does an Organisation need ISO/IEC 27035-1:2016?

    The ideologies given in this Standard are generic and intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size, or nature. Organizations can adjust the guidance given in ISO/IEC 27035-1:2016 in relation to the information security risk situation. It is also applicable to external organizations providing information security incident management services.

    By managing incidents effectively detective and corrective controls are designed to recognize and respond to events and incidents, minimize adverse impacts, gather forensic evidence (where applicable) and in due course ‘learn the lessons’ in terms of prompting improvements to the ISMS, typically by improving the preventive controls or other risk treatments.

    What are the Benefits of Implementing ISO/IEC 27035-1:2016?

    • Refining risk management,
    • Enlightening security awareness,
    • Creating security policies and procedures,
    • Improving information security,
    • Reducing business impacts,
    • Strengthening focus on prevention,
