Moreover, it provides a framework for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a Security Operations Management System. It enables the constant development of security services, while ensuring customer safety and respect for

human rights. This standard demonstrates compliance with laws and regulations, respect for human rights, and the establishment of professional security operations to better meet the customer’s and stakeholder’s needs.
