Why do you need an Information Security Policy?

One of the key reasons for an information security policy include:

  • Protect people and information
  • Set the rules for expected behaviour by users, system administrators, management, and security personnel
  • Authorize security personnel to monitor, probe, and investigate
  • Define and authorize the consequences of violation1
  • Define the company consensus baseline stance on security
  • Help minimize risk
  • Help track compliance with regulations and legislation

Information security policies provide a framework for best practice that can be followed by all employees. They help to ensure risk is minimized and that any security incidents are effectively responded to. Information security policies will also help turn staff into participants in the company’s efforts to secure its information assets, and the process of developing these policies will help to define a company’s information assets. Information security policy defines the organization’s attitude to information, and announces 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.
