Standards Australia has recently published security standards for the information technology industry.
The AS/NZS 4444:1996 Information Security Management document is intended for users responsible for implementing and maintaining security within an organisation.
It deals with procedures such as information systems design, and implementation and operation to safeguard information resources from both internal and external security threats.
The document also includes appendices and legislation relevant to Australia and New Zealand, as well as guidelines and principles from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
Standards Australia is also seeking comment on the following draft standards: information technology; tele-communications and information exchange between systems; private integrated services network; functional model and information flows; and name identification supplementary services.
