Access Alert | Japan Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) Proposes ISMAP for Low-Impact Use of SaaS cloud services in government information systems

The Japanese government has a current framework for the Security Evaluation System for Government Information Systems (ISMAP), required for all cloud services providing services to government information systems. While reviewing the requirements for systems handling confidentiality level 2 information under IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS setups, the MIC noted that SaaS requirements may be overly onerous, and excessive security requirements may be imposed.

The ISMAP-Low Impact Use (ISMAP-LIU)  mechanism is therefore proposed, with registration, security evaluation, audit procedures and management standards, as well as impact assessment guidelines for establishing the thresholds for low-impact usage.
