An ISMS (information security management system) is important for companies to ensure information security and minimize the risk of data loss, misuse and cyberattacks. The implementation of a risk management process and the sensitization of all employees are central to this.
An ISMS helps companies protect their data and information from cyberattacks and other security threats.
A well-implemented ISMS ensures that corporate data is confidential, integrity-protected and available.
Meeting legal requirements
An ISMS enables companies to meet legal and regulatory requirements relating to data security. (§ 91 para. 2.AktG)
Functions of a security management system
Archiving and Retention
Archiving and retention are important aspects of an organization's information security management system (ISMS). It involves identifying and retaining important data and information that is of value to the organization but may not be actively used. An effective archiving and retention system can help ensure data integrity and security by ensuring that important information is kept safe and secure.
Audit management is a critical aspect of the ISMS and refers to the monitoring, evaluation and management of an organization's various audit processes. An effective audit management system can help ensure that the organization meets compliance requirements, minimizes risk, and improves the effectiveness of its business processes.
Compliance tracking refers to the process of monitoring and managing compliance requirements. It is an important component of the ISMS, as companies are required to comply with various legal, regulatory and contractual requirements. An effective compliance tracking system can help ensure that the company complies with all relevant regulations and minimizes potential risks.
Traceability refers to the ability to establish a link between a change and its origin. In terms of an ISMS, traceability can help ensure that all changes to critical data or information are accurately tracked and documented. This can help improve the integrity and security of data and information by ensuring accountability and traceability of changes. In Jira, traceability is ensured by logging every change and its association with a specific person.

An effective ISMS should be ISO-compliant to ensure that best practices and standards are followed and that the security and integrity of data is maintained.
An effective ISMS should identify, evaluate, and take action to mitigate and manage risks.
