PAS 555 Cyber Security

PAS 555

Cyber security is one of the world’s fastest growing problems. PAS (Publicly Available Specification) 555:2013 – (Cyber security risk - Governance and management – Specification) provides a structured framework for managing the digital security of your organisation. Whereas information security (ISO 27001) deals with information regardless of format, cyber security is concerned with protecting digital assets. That means any information processed, stored and transported by inter-networked information systems.
