Azerbaijan plans to use new information security standard

Dec 11, 2012 (Trend News Agency - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Azerbaijan plans to use a new standard for information security, ISO 27001: 2005, head of the Information Society Department of the Azerbaijani Communications and IT Ministry Isbyandiyar Aliyev said today.

He said that hacking against Azerbaijani websites has increased recently. Sometimes, hackers can hack them. He has also expressed regret that these undesirable incidents are growing rapidly.

"In this regard, the Azerbaijani Communications and IT Ministry is implementing a number of tasks," he said. "A technical committee on ICT was established under the ministry in 2008. The main activity is to prepare the standards in the field of ICT and to localize the international standards into Azerbaijani. A large number of international standards have been localized today." The Azerbaijani President signed a decree on ensuring information security in the country in November. According to this document, a special agency has been established in the country. A center of electronic security was created under the ministry. Its principal function is to assist the state institutions, the business sector and citizens in resolving problems with information security and to develop legislation in this area and, in general, to increase the stability of the republic in the face of information threats.

The international standard ISO / IEC 27001:2005 "Information technologies -- Security methods -- Information security management systems -- Requirements" has been developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on the basis of the British Standard BS 7799. This new standard is a supplement to the standard ISO / IES 17799:2005 "Information technologies -- Security methods -- Rules of information security governance".

ISO 27001 defines the information security as the preservation of confidentiality, integrity and availability of information.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
