    ISO Network Security Standard

    Does anyone have any information on the forthcoming international standard (ISO 27011)? The only information I can find is here:

    The ISO website itself doesn't really help.

    Specifically, will it contain 'standards', such as suggested controls, or will it be a more waffly ISO 9000 managerial thing? Has anyone seen a draft copy (which apparently have been circulated)?

    Perhaps I will have to wait, but if anyone has any info, could you post it here?


    PS:I think this is the most appropriate category for the question. It cooul dhave been placed in several.

    Hello Mack3, and welcome to AO.

    I would say that you posted in exactly the right forum, although I do appreciate your rather "nice" distinction that this is a "standard" rather than a "regulation"

    I cannot help you right now as I am not working with anyone to whom it might apply at the moment. Today is a public holiday so I cannot contact any of my sources............ I will try to get back by the end of the week.


    My bet: If it is an ISO it will be all waffle and BS............... never seen one that wasn't


    The standard itself provides guidelines and principles
    "Ipse dixit"?

    It will be a guideline standard, like iso 27002, which means that it will be a large paper telling you that you should do something but then again you may not want to, and it is best if you decide how to...

    I have been trying to get my hands on a copy of the draft (unsuccessfully so far)
    If someone has the draft, send me a personal message, I would appreciate if you could share the document

    ISO 27001

    Hi MacK3,

    This is still in draft and ready to be published. (stage 60 as of yesterday)
    The most recent version I know of is the ITU-T X.1051 (07/2004)
    this has just been withdrawn from the ITU site but you might get it with cached pages. Alternatively contact me off line and I can send a copy of the pdf to you directly, or, wait a few weeks !!! and it should become available.
