Green Method has adapted its depth of experience in providing ISMS Services over the years to assist Abu Dhabi based organization to comply with the ADSIC regulations.

Abu Dhabi Systems & Information Centre (ADSIC) has developed a strategic vision for an Information Security Program that provides a holistic approach to enhancing information security for the Abu Dhabi Government. This program goal is to ensure that sensitive Government information is protected throughout its lifecycle within a service as well as within the automated systems where data is processed.

ADSIC vision, goals, and policies are derived from established standards, including ISO/IEC 27001 and 27002. These standards have been tailored to fit the specific requirements of the Abu Dhabi Government.

The ADSIC standards include the following:

  • The Abu Dhabi Information Security Policy establishes overall direction for the Government-wide Information Security Programme and its roles and responsibilities.
  • Supporting Information Security Policy is the Information Security Standards document, which provides the controls necessary to meet the Program management and functional policies. The controls in the Information Security Standards document relate to 51 control objectives that serve to identify the unique targets states for each of the 14 policies. These objectives constitute the major initiatives of the Information Security Program and are aligned with ISO 27002.

ADSIC has also developed a series of procedural and functional guides. These guides provide detailed instructions on how to implement management and functional control processes:

  • Abu Dhabi Risk Management Guide
  • Abu Dhabi Risk Assessment Guide
  • Abu Dhabi Information Security
    Planning Guide

Abu Dhabi Security Testing & Evaluation Guide
  • Abu Dhabi Certification & Accreditation Guide
Functional Guides
  • Abu Dhabi Information Security Technical
    Testing Guide
  • Abu Dhabi Policies and Procedures Guide

Green Method can assist the Organizations in

  • Preparing for ADSIC Certification and Accreditation
  • Carrying out Risk Assessments
  • Developing the Information Security Plan
  • Configuration Reviews, Vulnerability Tests, Penetration Tests and Application Assessments

Green Method also help Organization to simultaneously implement ISO 27001/ISO 27002 and ADSIC. Since there is a significant overlap between the standards, the joint implementation with limited additional effort would help the organizations to adhere to both the standards.
