The Need of Information Security Management System

In today''s dynamic world, organizations''s dependence on information increases, therefore, increases interest and demands towards information. Information processing activities are required to provide greater accuracy and reliability and, as a result, organizations are consistently and gradually facing the need for implementation of specific management models and practices and customizing them for their needs.Business partners are more willing to cooperate with organizations that see the need for proper and reliable processing of information and take care of it in their own business processes.


The information security management system is recommended for organizations whose activities include processing of information or whose final product or service is information. Organizations manage resources more efficiently by determining the roles and responsibilities, correct assessment and treatment of the risks, which result in new activities and opportunities, where those resources can be used. Eventually, the organization reaches its goal faster and with less funding. This is the major advantage of information security management system in comparison with other approaches.

Any organization can benefit from information security management system despite its legal form (private, public), size, activities, and complexity of processes.
