Government to establish Information Security Management System

Government to establish Information Security Management System

ICT professionals within the Public Service are participating in a week long Information Security Management workshop at the National ICT Centre from August 6 – 13.

The workshop is aimed at building key ICT human resource capacity that will enable the Government of Saint Lucia to establish an Information Security Management System (ISMS).

The ISMS will lead to ISO 27001 Standard Certification—an internationally recognized best practice framework for information security management.

This is particularly important as government continues with its e-Government initiatives, aimed at modernizing business processes, improving service delivery and increasing operational efficiency and productivity.

Workshop participants, with the help of facilitators from the International Integrated Systems Inc (IISI) based in Taiwan, will engage in presentations and discussions on Security Attacks Malware and Threats, Network Structure Security, Communication Security Tactics, Public Key Infrastructure, Security Policies Management, Operation Security, Business Continuity Plans and Disaster Recovery Plans.

Of major concern are the standards, procedures and protocols that govern the security and the integrity of digital data. Government officials say the necessary steps will be taken to identify and address information security threats, to maintain the security and integrity of the government’s ICT infrastructure.

ISMS will assist in developing the requisite capacity to ensure more effective data and information security systems.

The workshop is being hosted collaboratively by the Ministry of the Public Service, Information and Broadcasting, the Government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and the International Cooperation Development Fund (ICDF).
