With organizations facing increasing risks and pressures from corporate governance legislation, the Information Security Forum (ISF) has announced the latest version of its international industry benchmark, the Standard of Good Practice for Information Security. The updated 2005 version is freely available and is the only detailed and comprehensive global standard that allows organizations to manage the full range of threats and improve levels of information security.

The ISF 2005 Standard of Good Practice pays particular attention to current hot issues such as secure instant messaging, web server security, patch management and virus protection as well as important and changing areas of information security including information risk management, outsourcing, privacy and the disappearance of the network boundary.

Compiled by some of the worlds leading independent experts in information security, the Standard is based on over 16 years and $75 million of investment in practical research. The Standard draws on the knowledge and experiences of the ISF's 270 global members - including 50% of the Fortune 100 - as well as building on other standards such as ISO 17799 and COBIT.
