An Information Security Management System (ISMS) is a way to protect and manage information within an organisation based on a risk based approach. The ISO 27001: 2013 standard provides the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an ISMS. The ISO 27001 standard can often be misunderstood and may not always be interpreted in the correct manner.

Based on this, Mobius have developed a practical approach to implementing an ISMS. The objective of this presentation will be to provide:
• An overview of the ISO27001 standard;
• A practical approach as well as guidelines to consider when implementing an ISMS; and
• An overview of key artefacts to consider when developing an ISMS.
