Information security (IS18) implementation guideline (REPEALED) (Knowledge base)


This document was repealed on 7 March 2019.

This guideline provides information and advice for Queensland Government agencies to consider when implementing the mandatory principles of Information Standard 18: Information security(IS18). The requirements of IS18 and this supporting guideline, are based on the three elements of information security:

  • confidentiality – ensuring that information is accessible only to those authorised to have access
  • integrity – safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods
  • availability – ensuring that authorised users have access to information and associated assets when required.

These guidelines do not form the mandatory component of IS18 and are for information only, however they are based on best practice and agencies are strongly recommended to consider the advice provided in this document.
