Information security-related issues are assuming an increasingly important role in our society. These issues, however, have a surprisingly dualistic nature: almost everyone seems to be somehow familiar with them, but very few have a deeper understanding. Due to its multifaceted nature, information security should not be regarded as a separate concern; it is deeply intertwined with a multitude of business-related and societal functions. Of particular interest here is the integration, or embedding of information security into real business processes. In this paper, we argue for the significance of information security standards for global business and industry. The role of security management is analyzed against the changing situation of the global market. A security management approach applying international standards, enables companies–and also other organizations– to carry out their business and cooperate globally.
