Department of Education, Skills and Employment DESE Information Security Systems Scheme
The Department of Education, Skills and Employment services (DESE) engages private sector providers to assist persons to look for work. Service providers are required to comply with information security requirements under the Right Fit for Risk (RFFR). Under the RFFR, providers with a caseload lager than 2000+ per annum are required to attain certification to the Department’s contractual requirements statement of applicability (SoA) in order to tender for deeds.
The right fit for risk (RFFR) is a component of the Department’s external system’s assurance framework (ESAF) by which the department gains assurance over providers’ ISMS and ensures confidential data stored outside the department’s ICT environment are managed responsibly.
The aim of the scheme is to ensure providers are able to meet the base line requirements of Iso 27001 as well as specific evolving legal requirements as part of this standard. The scheme also provides assurance that organisations are meeting their RFFR contractual obligations, and that government data and personal information is handled securely.
Compass Assurance can provide assistance with this scheme as well as ISO 27001 audits
