National Bank of Azerbaijan to complete transition to ISO/IEC 27001 in autumn

Baku. Vugar Mustafayev-APA-ECONOMICS. International auditor KPMG will complete the National Bank of Azerbaijan’s Phase 1 transition to the ISO: 27001 Information Security Management Standard, said the central bank’s IT officer Ilham Hasanov. 
ISO/IEC 27001 is the only auditable international standard which defines the requirements for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). The standard is designed to ensure the selection of adequate and proportionate security controls.
The standard adopts a process approach for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving your ISMS.

The project will be accomplished in early November, 2008. The new standard will help protect information assets and give confidence to any interested parties.
