You are cordially invited to attend the upcoming webinar, within the ISO / UNIDO special series of webinars on “Countering the impacts of COVID-19 with international standards”:
Title: COVID-19, CYBERSECURITY AND INFORMATION SECURITY MANAGEMENT (ISO/IEC 27001)
- Dr. Edward Humphreys - Convenor of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27/WG 1 responsible for the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards including 27001
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased our dependence on the digital world, it has disrupted normal business operations, has meant greater reliance on security and business continuity, greater use of remote working, whilst maintaining critical business activity to continue to serve customers, provide services and protect infrastructure. This outlines the need for greater attention being paid to the cyber risks raised by the COVID-19 pandemic. Cyber criminals are taking the opportunity to exploit the disruption to normal business operations and to capitalise on the fears and uncertainties that have surfaced as a result of the pandemic.
In order to address some of the problems associated with cyber risks, ISO/IEC have over many years developed a suite of standards to help organizations deal with such risks. The COVID-19 pandemic brings into focus the need to apply these standards to protect our information, systems and infrastructure. This suite of standards has included using a management system approach for mitigating cyber risks and consists of a family of standards known as the ISO/IEC 27000 family. The core of this family is the standard ISO/IEC 27001 (information security management system) and this is supported by other standards that are sector specific, application and service specific.
This Webinar takes a look at the cyber risks that are prevalent today, in particular, those that have surfaced during COVID-19. We also talk about the standards in the ISO/IEC 27001 family and how they can help with mitigating cyber risks. Finally, ISO/IEC 27001 certification is raised, and the challenges of undertaking assessments and audits during the current COVID-19 situation.
Date & Time: Thursday 2 July 14:00 - 15:00 CET
