Just a Charla ..

‘Hi Linda, its long time since we had met..’
“Oh yeah, Tarun, it’s been quite a while ...So how are things on your side?”
‘Quite well, lot of new assignments and the heat is on.’
“That’s great, even I had a hectic schedule full of last month.. Ok Tarun , what’s hot in the Quality circuit..”
‘Everything is hot in Quality ...Recently ISO has released ISO 9000:2005, Quality management systems – Fundamentals and vocabulary.’
“Is it a new standard?”
‘No no ..its the updated version for the ISO 9000:2000 series vocabulary, which gives the descriptions of the fundamentals of quality management systems (QMS) .Now the standards, vocabulary has been enriched with new terms .Its just to bring in clarity among the community on what exactly certain key words in ISO 9001:2000 standards mean .’
“Ok..I also heard that a new standard for Information security is going to be released “
‘That’s true, the existing BS 7799-2:2002 has been relaunched as a new ISO 27001:2005 standard with few upgrades.’
“Oh.Its already released! What are the changes from the existing BS7799-2:2002 standard?”
‘Not much, the core sections remain the same. I have not really noted the changes yet. But it’s said it is more aligned toward other ISO standards – ISO 9001, ISO 14001.
“Will organizations have to get certified to ISO 27001:2005?”
‘Ya..From now on new certifications will be against ISO 27001:2005 and for organizations already certified to BS 7799-2:2002, there shall be a transition period ‘.
“Really everything looks hot in Quality. Everyday new things come up.”
‘Very true.You need to be constantly learning and upgrading your knowledge to keep on par with these changes…Ok tell me something why don’t I find many women in Information security area .Is it that women feel its too complex to handle netsystems,firewalls and LAN !’
“ Oh not really, we women handle more complex things than LAN – we handle MAN, a complex system which needs a lot more skill set than what it needs for managing your networks and firewalls …“
‘mm m that’s a good one..”
“It’s time .I am on my way to attend a seminar on BPM “
‘Business Process Management. That’s quite a substance in the business arena ‘
“Very much a knowledge worker you need to be constantly learning and upgrading knowledge !!!.Ok Tarun , Catch up with you soon “
‘Oh sure. Take care ..’
