Abstract

Information Society depends more and more on Information Security Management Systems (ISMSs) and the availability of these systems has become vital for SMEs’ evolution. However, this kind of companies need that ISMSs are adapted to their special characteristics as well as optimized from the viewpoint of the necessary resources to implement and maintain them. In this paper, we present an analysis of the different proposals that are arising oriented to im-plement ISMSs into SMEs with the purpose of determining the characteristics that a security management methodology oriented to SMEs should have.
