What is Baseline Security

Method of selecting security measures for implementation within a company, based upon measures used in similar organisations that are generally accepted to be well-run.

Implementation of Baseline Security throughout a company provides a common basis for units to develop, implement and measure effective information security management and practice. It also provides confidence in inter-unit/inter-company trading.

The International Standard for Information Security Management (ISO/IEC 17799) provides a list of baseline controls which should be implemented. Many of these basic principles apply to smaller organisations as well as to large companies.
