The purpose of an Information security management system is to secure an organization's information assets by identifying, assessing and managing risk factors which are presented by threats and vulnerabilities. This is achieved by identifying all assets of the organization, labelling them and further computing CIAL (Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, and Likelihood) values and performing the risk assessment. The assets with high risk are treated based on the defined risk assessment procedure.

- protect organization's critical information against disclosure, loss, improper use, unauthorized change and theft;
- assure business continuity;
