Keeping Standards up-to-date


Standards are living documents which reflect progress in science, technology and
systems. To maintain their currency, all Standards are periodically reviewed, and
new editions are published. Between editions, amendments may be issued.
Standards may also be withdrawn. It is important that readers assure themselves
they are using a current Standard, which should include any amendments which
may have been published since the Standard was purchased.
Detailed information about joint Australian/New Zealand Standards can be found by
visiting the Standards Web Shop at www.standards.com.au or Standards New
Zealand web site at www.standards.co.nz and looking up the relevant Standard in
the on-line catalogue.
Alternatively, both organizations publish an annual printed Catalogue with full
details of all current Standards. For more frequent listings or notification of
revisions, amendments and withdrawals, Standards Australia and Standards New
Zealand offer a number of update options. For information about these services,
users should contact their respective national Standards organization.
We also welcome suggestions for improvement in our Standards, and especially
encourage readers to notify us immediately of any apparent inaccuracies or
ambiguities. Please address your comments to the Chief Executive of either
Standards Australia or Standards New Zealand at the address shown on the back
cover.

This Standard was issued in draft form for comment as DR 06304.

The objective of this Standard is to provide the information security community with clear
guidance on formulating a structured and planned approach to the detection, reporting and
assessment of information security incidents. Mechanisms for response are also covered as are
feedback and learning strategies to reduce the overall frequency of information security
incidents.
As this Standard is reproduced from an international standard, the following applies:

INTRODUCTION

Introduction
No typical information security policies or safeguards will guarantee total protection of information, information
systems, services or networks. After safeguards have been implemented, residual weaknesses are likely to remain that
may make information security ineffective and thus information security incidents possible, potentially with both direct
and indirect adverse impacts on an organizations business operations. Further, inevitably new previously unidentified
threats will occur. Insufficient preparation by an organization to deal with such incidents will make any actual response
less effective, and potentially increase the degree of potential adverse business impact. Therefore it is essential for any
organization that is serious about information security to have a structured and planned approach to:
detect, report and assess information security incidents,
respond to information security incidents, including by the activation of appropriate safeguards for the prevention and
reduction of, and recovery from, impacts (for example in the support and business continuity planning areas),

learn from information security incidents, institute preventive safeguards, and, over time, make improvements to the
overall approach to information security incident management.

Scope

This is a free 9 page sample. Access the full version online.

This Type 3 Technical Report (TR) provides advice and guidance on information security incident management for
information security managers, and information system, service and network managers.
This TR contains 11 clauses and is organized in the following manner. Clause 1 describes the scope and is followed by a
list of references in Clause 2 and terms and definitions in Clause 3. Clause 4 provides some background to information
security incident management, and that is followed by a summary of the benefits and key issues in Clause 5. Examples of
information security incidents and their causes are then provided in Clause 6. The planning and preparation for
information security incident management, including document production, is then described in Clause 7. The
operational use of the information security incident management scheme is described in Clause 8. The review phase of
information security management, including the identification of lessons learnt and improvements to security and the
information security incident management scheme, is described in Clause 9. The improvement phase, i.e. making
identified improvements to security and the information security incident management scheme, is described in Clause 10.
Finally, the TR concludes with a short summary in Clause 11. Annex A contains example information security event and
incident report forms, and Annex B contains some example outline guidelines for assessing the adverse consequences of
information security incidents, for inclusion in the reporting forms. The Annexes are followed by the Bibliography.

Normative References

The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only
the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any
amendments) applies.
ISO/IEC 13335-1:2004, IT security techniques Management of information and communications technology
security Part 1: Concepts and models for information and communications technology security management
ISO/IEC 17799:2000, Information technology Code of practice for information security management

Terms and Definitions

For the purposes of this document the terms and definitions given in ISO/IEC 13335-1, ISO/IEC 17799 and the following
apply.

3.1

Business continuity planning

Business continuity planning is the process to ensure that recovery of operations will be assured should any unexpected
or unwanted incident occur that is capable of negatively impacting the continuity of essential business functions and
supporting elements. The process should also ensure that recovery is achieved in the required priorities and timescales,
and subsequently all business functions and supporting elements will be recovered back to normal.
The key elements of this process need to ensure that the necessary plans and facilities are put in place, and tested, and
that they encompass information, business processes, information systems and services, voice and data communications,
people and physical facilities.
