More About This Title INFORMATION SECURITY BREACHES

English

Although breaches of information security are not a new phenomenon, the methods used to perpetrate such breaches have changed considerably over the years. Leaking information to non-authorised people has always been an issue but, in the computer age, the speed and effectiveness with which breaches of information security can occur, and the amount of harm potentially caused are disturbing. Typically, also, they favour the perpetrator, not the victim.

This pocket guide outlines a process and its elements for the treatment of severe breaches, and places them in the context of the associated ISO27001 controls. It provides input for decision making and breach classification, and case studies where the reader can check out how other companies were affected and what they did, or did not do, upon becoming the victim of a breach.
