UK security group grows fivefold

Since its launch at the Infosecurity exhibition and conference in April, the UK branch of the US-based Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) has boosted membership fivefold, from about 20 founder members to more than 120 organisations and individuals.

ISSA, which is a global organisation aimed at identifying and promoting best practice IT security management approaches, works at several levels - from local technical, business and management perspectives to helping create national security policies and frameworks.

The first major quarterly meeting, on 7 October, will focus on two areas: the BS7799 security standard; and on optimum response to security incidents.
