The Cyber Security Regional Standardisation Enhancement Program focused on building market awareness and use of the ISO/IEC 27000 series. The Pacific Islands Cyber Security Standards Cooperation Agenda which outlines recommendations for further engagement and participation, adoption and implementation of internationally standards to improve cyber security in the Pacific region was the final stage of the program.
Cyber security is more than just an information technology problem. It is a broader business and societal issue that needs to be managed by economies all around the world.
In response, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) developed the ISO/IEC 27000 series, Information security management systems standards. Fundamentally, these standards are designed to assist any entity, regardless of size, keep information systems and data secure.
With a recent increase worldwide in the adoption and use of standards from the ISO/IEC 27000 series, the Pacific region is significantly under represented, and as a result, underprepared for cyber security threats. Standards Australia has a critical cyber security capacity building role within the Pacific region as part of the Australian Government’s Cyber Engagement Strategy.
