About ISMS and the Importance of Information Security
by Hye-im Li, Reporter
Sangmyung University has obtained a certification screening by the Korea Internet & Security Agency (KISA) for the operation of the academic administration system and the main homepage. As a result, Sangmyung University got the newly revised Information Security Management System (ISMS*) by meeting all areas of the certification standard. The certification standard includes the scholastic record, the grade administration, the Education Management system, issue of the certificate, and operation of the main homepage. Sangmyung University said that, “We have been working hard to establish a safe security system and the effort was confinned by obtaining revised ISMS.”
The Korea Internet & Security Agency is a government department which manages internetㆍinformation protection. One of the main businesses is the development of the information protection industry. To promote the information protection industry, the Korea Internet & Security Agency operates a certificate system. ISMS is one of the certificates which Sangmyung University obtained. The mandatory target of certification includes colleges with more than 10,000 students. There are 42 universities that correspond to the mandatory target. However, only 14 colleges obtained the certificate including Sangmyung University.
The Korea Internet & Security Agency has planned to make ISMS mandatory since September. Unacquired universities will be imposed a fine of 30 million won. The recent implementation of the certificate for mandatory colleges means the importance of information protection in universities. Universities handle private information like the scholastic record, the grade of students and personal information. Therefore, we have to think about the possibility of personal information leakage. To avoid the personal information leakage, it is important to establish a thorough Information Security Management System. Not only the effort of our university but also the effort of students is important. Since this personal information belongs to students. Thus, SMU students have to pay attention to personal information protection, too, when using a public computer. It would be a good method of prevention to log out after using a public computer.
*ISMS: ISMS and PIMS have been integrated and implemented since November 7th, 2018. ISMS and ISMS-P are the newly revised certifications.
