HS 13


A boom of information and communication technology (ICT) causes an increasing dependence of all organizations on these technologies. ICT improvement in organizations of all types influences the majority of their performed processes. The essential importance of ICT could also be derived from the general amount of annually realized ICT investments in all types of organizations. The first level of the prevention of undesirable IS/ICT breakdowns is IS/ICT protection inside each organization. When we discuss the securing of the information system of each organization, it does not have to be necessarily an exciting rush for the security “intruders“, but it’s usually backbreaking work of the team who is responsible for everyday’s respecting of the security rules. The lecture will deal, based on the PDCA approach, with some chosen aspects of IS/ICT security and it’s managing like: general topics and problems of the security risk management, security documentation in an organization, security incident management. The basis for this presentation were not only theoretical studies or green table consideration, but there is also big deal of practical experiences in introducing information system security management (based on ISO/IEC international standards) at domestic and international companies or public administration. Also the actual situation in IS/ICT Security Management in the Czech Republic will be presented.
