New video tutorial assists UK-based companies with information security and legal compliance


Ely, England, 8 October 2015Vigilant Software, the leader in compliance software, has made available a new video tutorial to help illustrate the simplicity of meeting legal and regulatory requirements for improved information security management.

Clause 4 of ISO 27001 requires organisations to take their internal and external context, and the requirements of interested parties, into account when determining the scope of the information security management system.

Interested parties are the organisation’s stakeholders that have specific legal or contractual requirements, such as regulators, statutory bodies and customers.  ISO 27001 mandates that these stakeholders’ requirements be considered when developing an information security management system.

The video demonstrates how the UK IT Legal Compliance Database helps organisations identify and access the full range of up-to-date requirements across a range of UK laws and regulations, thereby enabling them to meet the requirements of all interested parties.

Designed for organisations operating in England and Wales, the database includes over 90 laws and regulations relevant to information security.

The IT Legal Compliance Database helps users identify and select those laws that are relevant to their business, and allows users to select the relevant clauses, view full details of each clause, the effective dates, implementation requirements and links to the legislation itself.

The Database also includes 247 controls from both ISO 27001:2005 and ISO 27001:2013, and provides contact details of regulatory and enforcement bodies.

The video tutorials can be viewed here:
