Ten ways ISMS fail

These are symptoms that you need O-ISM3 SECBOK because your ISMS is failing:

  • When certain people go on leave or get sick, performance is affected.
  • Audits are painful and it takes a significant effort to pass successfully.
  • Changes in the ways things are done are difficult and slow to implement.
  • The same errors are made over and over again.
  • More than 20% of the time of the team is used trying to determine what to do or how to do it.
  • It is no infrequent to enter discussions with other teams about who is responsible for what.
  • The available Metrics do not reflect the performance of the team or the level of security.
  • Magic bullets are tried by management on a monthly basis and forgotten shortly after.
  • New workflow software was supposed to solve all management issues. Instead, it has introduced issues of its own.
  • Your ISMS is certified, but you are conscious that this wouldn't prevent a serious incident from happening.

If you have any of this symptoms, I would love to show you how O-ISM3 SECBOK could help you getting rid of all of them...

What is the Maturity of your ISMS?

Maturity is a measurement of the ability of an organisation for continuous improvement in a particular discipline (as defined in O-ISM3).

The higher the maturity, the higher will be the chances that incidents or errors will lead to improvements either in the quality or in the use of the resources of the discipline as implemented by the organisation.
