10. The Government constantly develops guidance to support Departments and agencies and keep up with changes in technologies. Advice on the management of information risks is available from the British Standards Institute in the ISO 27000 family of standards for information security management systems. These were developed in close co-operation with experts in the Cabinet Office and CESG, the part of GCHQ that acts as the National Technical Authority for Information Assurance, to address the full range of information security policy and good practice. They are reflected in a set of information security standards developed for Government, and incorporated in the Government's Manual of Protective Security. This was first issued in 1994, and has been regularly refreshed since then.
