– Henri Poincare

Organizations will track the consistency of their management of information security by:

  • Exercise and test the reliability of systems, procedures, and controls for the protection of information in compliance with objectives of information continuity;
  • Exercise and test expertise and routine in the systems, procedures and controls of information security continuity to ensure that its output is in line with the objectives for information security continuity;
  • Continuity of information infrastructure, information security mechanisms, policies and controls, and business continuity management/disaster recovery methods and strategies tests the quality and efficacy of information security initiatives.
