Maturity model for information security management released

The Open Group has published a new information security management standard, The Open Group Information Security Management Maturity Model (O-ISM3), which enables the creation of information security management systems that are fully aligned with any organization's business mission and compliance needs regardless of size, context and resources.

The new standard allows organizations to prioritize and optimize investments in information security, as well as enable continuous improvement of ISM systems using defined metrics.

O-ISM3 is compatible with other ISM industry standards, such as the ISO2700x series, ITIL and COBIT.

Intended to be a practical guide on security management for information security practitioners, O-ISM3 is the culmination of more than six years of work and collaboration by the ISM3 Consortium and The Open Group's Security Forum.

O-ISM3 focuses on common information security processes that the majority of organizations share so operational metrics can be applied to security management processes and protection techniques.

O-ISM3 is available for download after free registration here.
