Policy Development

A security policy and supporting standards are the primary governance structure for a cybersecurity program. Security policies and standards protect your people, process and technology. Documentation defines and scopes expected personnel behaviors, define the organization's position on security, minimizes risk and tracks compliance with regulations and legislation.

 

Security documentation defines the organization's attitude towards information and declares internally and externally that information is an asset, the property of the organization, and is to be protected from unauthorized access, modification, disclosure, and destruction.

Policy Development

               

Security policies and standards are an important part of a cybersecurity program because they help to establish clear guidelines and expectations for how employees should handle and protect sensitive information and assets. These policies and standards also help to minimize risk by establishing controls and procedures to prevent and mitigate potential security threats. Additionally, documentation helps to track compliance with relevant regulations and legislation, which is important for maintaining the integrity and credibility of the organization.

               

Security documentation, including policies and standards, helps to define the organization's position on information security and communicate that position to all employees and stakeholders. By treating information as an asset and making it clear that it should be protected from unauthorized access and other threats, the organization can demonstrate its commitment to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of its information. This is important for building trust with customers, partners, and other stakeholders, as well as for complying with relevant regulations and laws.

               

Securadin’s primary objectives for the documentation of your Information Security Management System (ISMS) are as follows:

 

  • Define consequences of policy violations

  • Ensure compliance with regulatory requirements

  • Establish security expectations for people, process, and technology

  • Develop and document organizational cybersecurity and compliance requirements

  • Reduce reputational and regulatory risk by defining and scoping your environment

  • Provide a strategy for communication of security policies, standards, and procedures with key stakeholders, auditors, or business partners
