What is ISMAP?
The “Information system Security Management and Assessment Program” (ISMAP) aims to ensure the security level of government cloud service procurement by evaluating and registering cloud services that meet the government's security requirements in advance, thereby contributing to the smooth introduction of cloud services. In the future, in principle, each government agency procures cloud services from services registered with ISMAP.
Cloud service providers request audit institutions registered in the “ISMAP Audit Institutions List” to perform information security assessment of ISMAP, and receive information security assessment of ISMAP based on the “ISMAP Standard Assessment Procedures”, etc. regarding the implementation status of information security measures based on ISMAP control criteria. The application for ISMAP registration is submitted after the assessment.
The ISMAP Steering Committee receives an application from cloud service providers that have undergone an information security assessment at ISMAP. They review the compliance with the requirements for cloud service registration applicants, and register the cloud services that they determine are appropriate for registration in the “ISMAP Cloud Service List”.
