Abstract

Computer security is now recognised as an important consideration in modern business, with a variety of guidelines and standards currently available to enable different business environments to be properly protected. However, financial and operational constraints often exist which influence the practicality of these recommendations. New baseline security methods such as Australian and New Zealand Standard (AS/NZS) 4444 and British Standard (BS) 7799 represent minimal standards which organisations can use to improve their security. The aim of the paper is to look at the effectiveness of baseline security standards through the use of an evaluation criteria, which assesses their effectiveness.
