Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This part of ISO/IEC 27033 describes the threats, security requirements, security control and design techniques associated with wireless networks. It provides guidelines for the selection, implementation and monitoring of the technical controls necessary to provide secure communications using wireless networks. The information in this part of ISO/IEC 27033 is intended to be used when reviewing or selecting technical security architecture/design options that involve the use of wireless network in accordance with ISO/IEC 27033-2.
Overall, ISO/IEC 27033-6 will aid considerably the comprehensive definition and implementation of security for any organization’s wireless network environment. It is aimed at users and implementers who are responsible for the implementation and maintenance of the technical controls necessary to provide secure wireless networks.
