Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard replaces CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC TR 18044-05 (adoption of ISO/IEC TR 18044:2004). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 27035:2011 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This International Standard provides a structured and planned approach to:
a) detect, report and assess information security incidents;
b) respond to and manage information security incidents;
c) detect, assess and manage information security vulnerabilities; and
d) continuously improve information security and incident management as a result of managing information security incidents and vulnerabilities.
This International Standard provides guidance on information security incident management for large and medium-sized organizations. Smaller organizations can use a basic set of documents, processes and routines described in this International Standard, depending on their size and type of business in relation to the information security risk situation. It also provides guidance for external organizations providing information security incident management services.
