/ IT Governance Ltd, the one-stop-shop for information security and management system standards, books and tools, has reported that the ISO/IEC 27010:2012 Infosec Communications standard is available from the company's international website for immediate dispatch: A downloadable PDF version of this standard is also available:

ISO/IEC 27010:2012 provides guidance on information security for inter-sector and inter-organisational communication. Following the guidelines in the standard will allow organisations to ensure their sensitive information, which sometimes needs to be shared with other organisations, is protected from unauthorised access.

Protecting confidential information form cybercriminals is a considerable challenge to any organisation. In this regard, ISO/IEC 27010:2012 is applicable to all types of sensitive information sharing, regardless of sector, country, industry or type of organisation. The guidance on methods, models, processes, policies and controls will help professionals understand the principles of sharing of information securely with trusted counterparties.

On the other hand, the use of the standard's guidelines could be of particular benefit to those involved in the provision, maintenance and protection of an organisation's or nation states critical infrastructure.

ISO/IEC 27010:2012 is fully aligned with the ISO 27000 family of standards and enables organisations to address communication in a secure manner that is compliant with ISO27001.
