WHAT IS AN INFORMATION SECURITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM?
Organisations are implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS) to effectively manage cyber, compliance, and regulatory risks relating to the management of information.
Information Security Management System is a systematic approach to align processes, technology, and people to help you protect and manage your organisation’s information risks.
Information Security Management System enables compliance with a host of laws and focuses your organisation’s protection efforts around covering three critical aspects of information:
Information is not disclosed to unauthorised users or processes.
Information is accessible and usable by authorised users.
Information is complete, accurate, and protected from corruption.
THE ISMS CHALLENGE
The rapidly changing technology landscape is making it almost impossible for most companies to keep up. Organisations are wrestling with more significant information threats, growing regulatory requirements, shrinking budgets, and smaller teams.
Managing information is becoming a significant risk that could spell disaster for many businesses if not effectively controlled. Yet implementing an ISMS can be a complex task for any organisation.
The key challenges are:
Skilled resources to implement an ISMS
Disruptions and change within the business
Ensuring buy-in across the business
Multiple and mis-aligned processes
It is further complicated due to mandatory artefact requirements, time and resource constraints, a lack of competencies, and the lack of technology to support an ISMS.
THE ISMS SOLUTION
The Phinity cloud platform integrates into your organisation’s processes to workflow, automate, and scale your ISMS. Our solution simplifies the process with a built-in, risk-based approach that tracks the relevant metrics to ensure ownership and responsibility of each compliance step throughout your organisation.

Then plan the assessment approach, the scope of inventory assets, and the information security objectives with a plan to achieve them.

Profile, assess, and categorise all assets via a systematic, integrated solution that provides real-time data and analysis with recommendations on managing each asset according to risk, standards, and policies.
