A clear policy framework helps protecting your assets
A clear policy framework helps eliminating misunderstandings about what to do in situations where data security or the compliance status of an organisation is at stake.
Policies and procedures are the set of principles, rules and guidelines formulated by an organization to reach its long-term goals and typically published in a booklet or other form that is widely accessible.
They provide the framework within which an organisation operates, give important guidance in what the organisation does and how it does it and support consistency and effective decision making.
Clear information security policies are an important component of any effective security program, they are designed to result in having an engaged set of employees looking after your organisation’s assets.
In addition to having staff acknowledge your organisation's information security policy framework, it is important to make sure that they have understood the policies. Providing suitable training and bringing policies alive with specific real-world examples can be done in order to achieve this.
