Information is the currency of the information age and in many cases is the most valuable asset possessed by an organisation. Information security management is the discipline that focuses on protecting and securing these assets against the threats of natural disasters, fraud and other criminal activity, user error and system failure.Effective information security can be defined as the preservation of confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. This book describes the approach taken by many organisations to realise these objectives. It discusses how information security cannot be achieved through technological means alone, but should include factors such as the organisation s approach to risk and pragmatic day-to-day business operations.This Management Guide provides an overview of the implementation of an Information Security Management System that conforms to the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2005 and which uses controls derived from ISO/IEC 17799:2005.

Testing and Securing Web Applications

Testing and Securing Web Applications

The primary objective of this book is to address those specific areas that require testing before a web app can be considered to be completely secure.

Web applications occupy a large space within the IT infrastructure of a business or a corporation. They simply just don’t touch a front end or a back end; today’s web apps impact just about every corner of it. Today’s web apps have become complex, which has made them a prime target for sophisticated cyberattacks. As a result, web apps must be literally tested from the inside and out in terms of security before they can be deployed and launched to the public for business transactions to occur. The primary objective of this book is to address those specific areas that require testing before a web app can be considered to be completely secure. The book specifically examines five key areas: Network security: This encompasses the various network components that are involved in order for the end user to access the particular web app from the server where it is stored at to where it is being transmitted to, whether it is a physical computer itself or a wireless device (such as a smartphone). Cryptography: This area includes not only securing the lines of network communications between the server upon which the web app is stored at and from where it is accessed from but also ensuring that all personally identifiable information (PII) that is stored remains in a ciphertext format and that its integrity remains intact while in transmission. Penetration testing: This involves literally breaking apart a Web app from the external environment and going inside of it, in order to discover all weaknesses and vulnerabilities and making sure that they are patched before the actual Web app is launched into a production state of operation. Threat hunting: This uses both skilled analysts and tools on the Web app and supporting infrastructure to continuously monitor the environment to find all security holes and gaps. The Dark Web: This is that part of the Internet that is not openly visible to the public. As its name implies, this is the "sinister" part of the Internet, and in fact, where much of the PII that is hijacked from a web app cyberattack is sold to other cyberattackers in order to launch more covert and damaging threats to a potential victim. Testing and Securing Web Applications breaks down the complexity of web application security testing so this critical part of IT and corporate infrastructure remains safe and in operation.

This new volume, Information Security Management Systems: A Novel Framework and Software as a Tool for Compliance with Information Security Standard, looks at information security management system standards, risk management associated with information security, and information security awareness within an organization. The authors aim to improve the overall ability of organizations to participate, forecast, and actively assess their information security circumstances. It is important to note that securing and keeping information from parties who do not have authorization to access such information is an extremely important issue. To address this issue, it is essential for an organization to implement an ISMS standard such as ISO 27001 to address the issue comprehensively. The authors of this new volume have constructed a novel security framework (ISF) and subsequently used this framework to develop software called Integrated Solution Modeling (ISM), a semi-automated system that will greatly help organizations comply with ISO 27001 faster and cheaper than other existing methods. In addition, ISM does not only help organizations to assess their information security compliance with ISO 27001, but it can also be used as a monitoring tool, helping organizations monitor the security statuses of their information resources as well as monitor potential threats. ISM is developed to provide solutions to solve obstacles, difficulties, and expected challenges associated with literacy and governance of ISO 27001. It also functions to assess the RISC level of organizations towards compliance with ISO 27001. The information provide here will act as blueprints for managing information security within business organizations. It will allow users to compare and benchmark their own processes and practices against these results shown and come up with new, critical insights to aid them in information security standard (ISO 27001) adoption.

Security threats are a significant problem for information technology companies today. This book focuses on how to mitigate these threats by using security standards and provides ways to address associated problems faced by engineers caused by ambiguities in the standards. The security standards are analysed, fundamental concepts of the security standards presented, and the relations to the elementary concepts of security requirements engineering (SRE) methods explored. Using this knowledge, engineers can build customised methods that support the establishment of security standards. Standards such as Common Criteria or ISO 27001 are explored and several extensions are provided to well-known SRE methods such as Si*, CORAS, and UML4PF to support the establishment of these security standards. Through careful analysis of the activities demanded by the standards, for example the activities to establish an Information Security Management System (ISMS) in compliance with the ISO 27001 standard, methods are proposed which incorporate existing security requirement approaches and patterns. Understanding Pattern and Security Requirements engineering methods is important for software engineers, security analysts and other professionals that are tasked with establishing a security standard, as well as researchers who aim to investigate the problems with establishing security standards. The examples and explanations in this book are designed to be understandable by all these readers.

It is irrefutable that information is a valuable asset to an organization regardless of the form i.e. on paper or digital. Many business operations depend highly on this information in their critical business processes. Thus, organizations need to protect such information appropriately. Information should be protected to secure confidentiality, integrity and availability. In addition, other elements such as non-repudiation and authentication should also be considered. More organizations have come to realize the importance of protecting and securing their information. Information Security Management System (ISMS) is a framework which enables organizations to manage security incidents holistically and systematically. The benefits of adopting and deploying this information security management framework are extensive. Its adoption and deployment is a tedious and lengthy process and the level of commitment is high, but the benefits, surpasses all that. This guideline provides a holistic view on how to jumpstart the ISMS implementation. Organizations would be able to have a better understanding of ISMS implementation; thus easing the process and ensuring appropriate utilization of resources whilst implementing ISMS.
