Quality and Information Security Webinars
- June / July 2021
11 June 2021
Qudos announces a number of Quality and Information Security Webinars in June and July 2021.
Qudos3 IMS Software - Assets Module
The first of our Quality and Information Security Webinars in June is based on the new Qudos3 Assets module. The management of assets has become an important area of management systems. Asset Management is the subject of ISO 27001 Information Security standard control A8. It is also very relevant to the 7.1 Resources and other clauses in standards such as ISO 9001 Quality, ISO 45001 OHS etc.
Unlike most asset management applications, the new Qudos3 Assets module is designed to help you to more effectively manage both physical and information assets, and for compliance with the requirements of ISO 27001.
An introduction to Information Security for the Quality Professional
How important is information security to your quality management system?
Has your organisation identified their risks, assessed the implications and put in place systemised controls to limit security breaches?
It’s becoming ever more important, with a growing cross-over between the topics. As we come to rely more heavily on information technology, the security of that information is becoming a vital component of a quality management system.
Basically, we want our information to:
- Only be accessed by the right people (Confidentiality)
- Only be changed by authorised people or processes (Integrity)
- Be available to read and use whenever we want (Availability).
These 3 principles are often referred to by the acronym CIA (yes, there’s a joke in there somewhere). The CIA triad of principles forms the basis of information security.
There is a growing trend for organisations to implement an ISMS (Information Security Management System) based on the requirements of ISO27001. Even when that is not the case, our increasing reliance on information technology means the security of that information is becoming an important consideration for other management systems – such as those for ISO9001 Quality.
This discussion introduces ISO 27001 and it also considers the relevance of information security to a quality management system based on ISO 9001.
This webinar will be delivered on behalf of AOQ (Australian Organisation for Quality)
Bookings are via AOQ. Register now
Bookings close 12 noon Wednesday, 23 June 2021.
Qudos3 IMS Software - Security Classification Scheme
This webinar also relates to Asset Management. ISO 27001 control A8 requires an organisation to establish a system to classify its information assets in terms of their sensitivity. The system would include rules for the sharing and protection of information - depending on the classification level.
The Qudos3 Security Classification Scheme allows great flexibility in controlling access to documents and records. The scheme provides 4 levels of classification plus an unclassified option for compliance with the requirements of ISO 27001.
Further Quality and Information Security Webinars will be held in August and future months - for both Qudos clients and the public. Click here to receive notifications.
