It was only a matter of time before an ISO security standard emerged for information technology. Equally, it is inevitable that it will have a dramatic effect upon the whole area of information technology.

This presentation desrcibes ISO 17799 from a high level and overview perspective. It explains the background to the standard, its history, and explains to some degree why it cannot be ignored. It will hopefully serve as a helpful and useful introduction to the topic.
