Title Information Security (IS18)
Description and Details Purpose

The business of the Queensland Government covers a diverse range of industries and services, with individual agencies having varying technical and operational requirements in terms of information security controls. This Standard enunciates the mandatory requirements for agencies when establishing, implementing and maintaining information security within their organisation.
This standard provides a starting point for the development of individual agency information security management. Agencies must assess specific risks and take reasonable steps to protect information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
The requirements of this Standard are based on the three elements of information security:
Confidentiality Ensuring that information is accessible only to those authorised to have access;
Integrity Safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods; and
Availability Ensuring that authorised users have access to information and associated assets when required.
