These provide high quality, meticulously reviewed and rapid publication, to cater the insistent need of scientific community. These journals are indexed with all their citations noted. The top open access journals are indexed in SCOPUS, COPERNICUS, CAS, EBSCO and ISI. The Journal of Information Technology & Software Engineering is an open-access journal. Risk management in information security is the process of identifying threats and vulnerabilities to the important and unimportant information systems that the business/ organization holds. The point that is to be noted while risk management is that threats and vulnerabilities are not the same at all times. There are varying degrees of threats evolving on a day-to-day basis according to the level of security applied. As more complex and secure software codes are developed to protect the systems, the complexity to deal with threats increases at the same rate. As the complexity of threat increases, so much higher is the risk. The code of practice follows an order to measure to be taken for every information security management: security policy, organization of information security, asset management, human resources security, physical and environmental security, communications and operations management, human resources security, physical and environmental security, communications and operations management, access control, information systems acquisition, development and maintenance, information security incident management, business continuity management and regulatory management. In a broader point of view, risk management consists of: identify assets and estimation of their value, conducting a threat assessment, conducting a vulnerability assessment, calculating the impact that each threat would have on each asset; identifying, selecting and implementing appropriate controls and evaluating the effectiveness of the control measures.
