ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard to define requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS). An ISMS is used by an organization to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all business information. ISO/IEC 27001 is a standard that is applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size, or nature. It includes a set of Security Controls – 114 controls, divided into 14 categories – to guide the implementation of an ISMS.
BigFix has been used by customers to create a secure foundation across servers and client devices. I-Lung Kao, HCL BigFix Product Manager, has written a white paper that describes how the applicable ISO/IEC 27001 controls can be implemented using BigFix.
Also, I-Lung will be discussing how BigFix can be used to support both NIST 800-53 and ISO/IEC 27001 standards during an upcoming webinar on November 4th.
