Further Help:


  • the ISO 17799 Standard is an extremely thorough methodology for achieving information system security.
    It is quite relevant in the context of GLBA, HIPPA and SOX compliance, at least for large organizations.
    Unfortunately the standard itself is for sale. Due to wide variations in pricing and considering that ISO 17799 will be best implemented with external help from a competent consulting firm, the author declines to recommend any source.
    However the interested reader is referred to a free ISO 17799 preview by Praxiom Research Group Ltd, a proof of marketing acumen.
