An Exclusive ecfirst Signature Webcast 11/10:

NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA, USA – November 10, 2010: Organizations are increasingly considering applying the ISO 27000 international security standards, NIST and PCI DSS Standards to comply with various U.S. federal (e.g. HIPAA, HITECH Data Breach and Meaningful Use) and state regulations (CA, MA, others).

The ISO 27000 is a global standard that provides a comprehensive framework that organizations can adopt to address compliance requirements and establish a resilient information infrastructure. NIST Standards provide a terrific opportunity for businesses to establish their policies, plans and procedures for security capabilities and controls. ISO 27000, NIST & PCI Standards provide best practice recommendations on information security management, risks and controls within the context of an overall enterprise compliance and security program.
