ISSA recently received Category C liaison status in ISO SC27. This will provide ISSA members with the opportunity to review and comment on ISO topics in information security. These include projects in the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards as well as new projects in Identity Management and other areas of information security. ISSA is currently planning how the members will participate and which projects we will focus on. At this meeting, Eva Kuiper will provide an overview and status of current ISO security projects within the various SC27 working groups.
