An effective Information Security / Cybersecurity Program requires a strategic approach, and an Information Security / Cybersecurity Policy is the foundation for success. A solid policy is built with straightforward rules, standards, and agreements that conform to industry best practices and regulatory requirements. It provides institutional memory that survives inevitable changes in personnel. It clearly defines information security expectations, activities, roles, and responsibilities. Its requirements, values, and goals must also reflect those of the organization’s culture as a whole.
Sage's Sample Information Security / Cybersecurity Program outlines the components of a comprehensive information security / cybersecurity program. Each section includes a description, as well as what the corresponding policy should include. Organizations may use this document as a starting point for building a comprehensive program or as a reference to enhance an existing program.
