Source: Sara Hollins - Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Security The new security standard from BSI, BS7799 3, has been published today. This is titled "Guidelines for Information Security Risk Management", and supports the more general security management standard, ISO27001, which was published last year.

Whilst ISO 27001 covers information security management systems as a whole, BS7799-3 focuses solely upon risk, covering:

  • the evaluation of risk
  • implementation of controls to address risk
  • monitoring of identified risks
  • maintenance of the control management system.

BS7799-3 is organized into the following sections:

  • Scope
  • Normative references
  • Definition of terms
  • Risk in the organization context
  • Risk assessment
  • Risk decision making
  • On going risk management

The new standard itself is available for the usual BSI outlet: BS-7799

Or as part of a special BS7799 edition of the ISO 17799 Toolkit: Here

Although it is early days, for further information on BS7799-3, the following general reference site may assist: BS7799 Explained
