Abstract: The information security management standard requires enterprises to undertake regular reviews of the effectiveness of their information security management system. According to ISO, the effectiveness of the implemented information security controls to verify that the security requirements, according to the business objectives, have been met. This paper focuses on the identification of a set of assessment measures that could be used in assessing information security readiness according to the recommended security controls of the information security management standard. This paper presents the suitable security measures that could be used as an input to an analytical model for numerically assessing enterprise information security.
