10)  ISO/IEC 27019 Information security management guidelines based on ISO/IEC 27002 for process control systems specific to the energy utility industry

ISO/IEC TR 27019 provides guiding principles based on ISO/IEC 27002 for information security management applied to process control systems as used in the energy utility industry. The aim of ISO/IEC TR 27019 is to extend the ISO/IEC 27000 set of standards to the domain of process control systems and automation technology, thus allowing the energy utility industry to implement a standardized information security management system (ISMS) in accordance with ISO/IEC 27001 that extends from the business to the process control level.

The scope of ISO/IEC TR 27019 covers process control systems used by the energy utility industry for controlling and monitoring the generation, transmission, storage and distribution of electric power, gas and heat in combination with the control of supporting processes. This includes in particular the following systems, applications and components:

  • The overall IT-supported central and distributed process control, monitoring and automation technology as well as IT systems used for their operation, such as programming and parameterization devices;
  • Digital controllers and automation components such as control and field devices or PLCs, including digital sensor and actuator elements;
  • All further supporting IT systems used in the process control domain, e.g. for supplementary data visualization tasks and for controlling, monitoring, data archiving and documentation purposes;
  • The overall communications technology used in the process control domain, e.g. networks, telemetry, telecontrol applications and remote control technology;
  • Digital metering and measurement devices, e.g. for measuring energy consumption, generation or emission values;
  • Digital protection and safety systems, e.g. protection relays or safety PLCs;
  • Distributed components of future smart grid environments;
  • All software, firmware and applications installed on above mentioned systems.

Outside the scope of ISO/IEC TR 27019 is the conventional or classic control equipment that is non-digital, i.e. purely electro-mechanical or electronic monitoring and process control systems. Furthermore, energy process control systems in private households and other, comparable residential building installations are outside the scope of ISO/IEC TR 27019.

It applies to any organization (private, governmental, and non-governmental, irrespective of size) developing its ICT readiness for business continuity program (IRBC), and requiring its ICT services/infrastructures to be ready to support business operations in the event of emerging events and incidents, and related disruptions, that could affect continuity (including security) of critical business functions. It also enables an organization to measure performance parameters that correlate to its IRBC in a consistent and recognized manner.

The scope of ISO/IEC 27031 encompasses all events and incidents (including security related) that could have an impact on ICT infrastructure and systems. It includes and extends the practices of information security incident handling and management and ICT readiness planning and services.

13)    ISO/IEC 27035 Information security incident management.

ISO/IEC 27035-1 is the foundation of this multipart International Standard. It presents basic concepts and phases of information security incident management and combines these concepts with principles in a structured approach to detecting, reporting, assessing, and responding to incidents, and applying lessons learnt.

The principles given in ISO/IEC 27035-1 are generic and intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size or nature. Organizations can adjust the guidance given in ISO/IEC 27035-1 according to their type, size and nature of business in relation to the information security risk situation. It is also applicable to external organizations providing information security incident management services.

ISO/IEC 27035-2 provides the guidelines to plan and prepare for incident response. The guidelines are based on the “Plan and Prepare” phase and the “Lessons Learned” phase of the “Information security incident management phases” model presented in ISO/IEC 27035‑1.

The major points within the “Plan and Prepare” phase include the following:

  • information security incident management policy and commitment of top management;
  • information security policies, including those relating to risk management, updated at both corporate level and system, service and network levels;
  • information security incident management plan;
  • incident response team (IRT) establishment;
  • establish relationships and connections with internal and external organizations;
  • technical and other support (including organizational and operational support);
  • information security incident management awareness briefings and training;
  • information security incident management plan testing.

The principles given in this part of ISO/IEC 27035 are generic and intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size or nature. Organizations can adjust the guidance given in this part of ISO/IEC 27035 according to their type, size and nature of business in relation to the information security risk situation.
