New ISO 27014 standard helps govern information security

/ IT Governance, the single-source provider of information security standards, books, tools, training and consultancy, has announced that the new ISO 27014 standard is available to order from their international website at

The full title of this recently published document is ISO 27014:2013 Information technology — Security techniques — Governance of information security. The standard will help organisations drive information security initiatives forward, whilst ensuring effective governance of information security and alignment with business objectives.

According to the 2013 ISBS Survey, information security budgets are increasing and so companies will be feeling the pressure to demonstrate their return on investment. This standard can help senior managers make better decisions about their organisation’s information security investments.

Other benefits of adopting ISO 27014 include:
• Information security activities support and help businesses achieve their objectives
• There is accountability for information security within the organisation
• Expenditure on information security is proportionate, effective and delivers value
• Information risk is dealt with effectively
• There is constant awareness of the organisation's information security posture
• Businesses meet regulatory compliance requirements
