  • determining the resources needed to manage security
  • communicating the importance of cyber security
  • ensuring that the work achieves the desired results
  • promoting the continuous improvement of cyber security

Top management also decides the scope of the information security management system and records the decision in the description of the system. This means, for example, whether some parts of the organisation's activities or information are excluded from the scope of the management system, or whether it applies to all information / activities of the organization.
