The standard is explicitly concerned with information security, meaning the security of all forms of information e. Converting into a multi-partite standard would have several advantages:. Network access and connections should be restricted. However, some control objectives are not applicable in every case and their generic wording is unlikely to reflect the precise requirements of every organization, especially given the very wide range of organizations and industries to which the standard applies.

This implies the need for a set of SC 27 projects and editors to work on the separate parts, plus an overall coordination team responsible for ensuring continuity and consistency across them all. Given a suitable database application, the sequencing options are almost irrelevant, whereas the tagging and description of the controls is critical. At the end of the day, security controls will inevitably be allocated to themes and tagged arbitrarily in places: IT facilities should have sufficient redundancy to satisfy availability requirements.

Unattended equipment must be secured and there should be a clear desk and clear screen policy. In practice, this flexibility gives users a lot of latitude to adopt the information security controls that make sense to them, but makes it unsuitable for the relatively straightforward compliance testing implicit in most formal certification schemes.

The standard is structured logically around groups of related security controls.

In my considered opinion based on the horrendous problems that dogged the to revision, it is no longer maintainable, hence it is no longer viable in its current form.

There appears to be a desire to use the libraries to drive and structure further ISO27k standards development, but the proposal is unclear at least to me at this point.

It was revised again in The standard is with a reading list of 27! SC 27 could adopt collaborative working practices, jointly developing a revised version of through real-time collaborative development and editing of a shared documentat least as far as the Committee Drafts when the approach might revert to the existing formalized methods to complete the process and issue a revised standard.
