5.35 Independent review of information security

Updated: Apr 14

Ensuring a robust information security posture requires a holistic, constantly evolving approach that encompasses people, processes, and technology. To gauge the effectiveness of your security measures, regular independent reviews are imperative. These evaluations assess your organization's suitability, adequacy, and efficacy in managing information security. This review should be carried out by individuals who are not part of the domain under review, such as internal auditors or independent managers.
