Policies can also help evidence to third parties and regulators that you have fulfilled their requirements and are both contractually and legally compliant.
How do you write a Security Policy?
Writing a security policy for your company can feel like an overwhelming challenge. There’s pressure to both implement a solution quickly whilst ensuring the policies achieve their goals. But writing a security policy doesn’t have to be a chore. To get started, consider the following questions:
⦁ Who Does What, When, And Why?
⦁ Who Gets Access To What?
⦁ What’s The Penalty?
⦁ What Are The Compliance Requirements?
Who does what, when, and why?
Cyber security policies provide a roadmap to employees of what to do and when to do it. For example, most password management policies today prompt you to change your password every 90 days. Without a password expiration policy, it’s likely that most employees would continue to use the same password, posing a serious risk that could compromise the security of your network.
