Following on from last week’s Toolkit Insider Series post, we’ll be focusing on the Anti-virus Software Work Instruction document from the ISO27001 2013 ISMS Standalone Documentation Toolkit.
Anti-virus software plays an essential part in protecting organisations against the threat of malware. According to research from Ponemon Institute, in 2017, 54% of organisations experienced one or more successful attacks that compromised data and/or IT infrastructure. This could be one of the reasons why four out of five organisations replaced or augmented their anti-virus solution that year.
As organisations are now regularly investing in their anti-virus software, they could benefit further by creating an Anti-virus Software Work Instruction document.
Anti-virus Software Work Instruction document
This work instruction can help you organise the installation and maintenance of anti-malware software on your organisation’s workstations, servers, computers, mobile phones and other devices.
It will help you to create a plan that helps your staff understand which anti-virus software is installed on their devices, how they can find out when their software was last checked for an update and whom they should contact if they think their software has not been updated.
