Dear Colleagues,

I thought this might be of interest....regulators have done their best to improve legislation to help organizations to better protect their information systems.

Unfortunately and as a result of this, organizations have been buried in an avalanche of conflicting requirements that are difficult to keep track off. They are expected to demonstrate an acceptable standard of due care in managing their computing infrastructures and the information that networks and systems create, transmit, and store. Moreover, they have to show that all this helps reduce the risk against having their systems misused for criminal activities.

Hence, we thought we write Urs+Nahum's Security Checklist. It provides well structured information that enables high-level reporting, thus empowering executive and technical leaders with a greater ability to make informed decisions. It prioritizes numerous requirements that managers need, guiding them through the process that improves corporate risk management and information security while helping improve confidentiality of data and citizens' privacy.

You can get a short summary here:

Urs+Nahum's Security Checklist will be released May 30, 2007. We hope that it will be useful to you all.... in your daily work. Please let us know what you think about this work, if you can spare the time, of course.

Enjoy your long weekend.
