Since you said "Free Tool to check Security for Windows" before mentioning logs and whatnot, try MBSA to do some 
compliance/attestation checking for small environments.  You can run it against different hosts across the network, or 
locally.  

If it's a larger environment you should use an enterprise solution, which usually are not free.  In a heterogeneous 
environment you can buy and use tools like Lumension STAT scanner, Rapid-7, GFI LanGuard, etc.  If it's a 
Windows-centric environment then Microsoft's SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager) provides some useful features.

Don't get me wrong...monitoring logs is fine and has value.  But what you probably want to focus on first is risk 
prevention, not incident detection.  Keeping systems patched and hardened has much value.  "An ounce of prevention is 
worth a pound of cure" and whatnot.  And of course you'll need good malware prevention and detection (network and 
host-based), as well as good user awareness to take another large swipe at risk.

By the way I'm not endorsing any of those named products because I don't know what your specific environment needs are. 
 But none of them are junk for what it's worth.  There are many junk products out there though, so my advice is to try 
before you buy.

Happy learning, ya n00b (heh, no offense intended).

Hi,

The more infomation your provide, the easier it is for us to help you:
1. How to implement ISO27001 -

Try this http://www.iso27001security.com/html/27001.html for info on
implementing. There have a news group that is very good.
For something authorithative, then get a book...amazon is again good.
You need to purhased or gain access to the Standard some how...

2. Free Tool to check Security  for Windows and Network point like log
monitoring,event monitoring tools.

I assume you are looking for a SIEM solution. Splunk is a good log
monitoring tools that accepts Syslog and other logs formats , but you
may need to do event correlations your self, not sure if it has any
stools

3. Related information on Security aspects.

What do you need ? Google is your best friend unless you are more specific ?
The CISSP CBK by Shon Harris will give you a good over view of various
aspects of security.
