Security Policy and Procedure Manual Template
Includes PCI DSS Audit Program
The Security Policy and Procedure Manual for the Internet and Information Technology is over over 230 pages in length. All versions of the Security Manual template include both the Business & IT Impact Questionnaire and the Threat & Vulnerability Assessment Tool (both were redesigned to address Sarbanes Oxley and CobiT compliance). In addition, the Security Manual Template PREMIUM Edition contains 16 detail job descriptions that apply specifically to security and Sarbanes Oxley, ISO 27000 (ISO27001 and ISO27002),CobiT, PCI-DSS, and HIPAA. Data Protection is a priority.
The first issue revolves around the content and structure of the policies themselves: Are they complete? Are they fully up to date? Do they reflect your needs? This list of issues is extensive!
There are a number of possible routes available when creating the policies, ranging from off the shelf purchase, to carefully crafting every clause and sentence.
The most cost effective way is often to procure a set of pre-written policies, and then tailor as necessary to meet specific cultural needs: why re-invent the wheel and proceed down a more complex route than necessary?
When adopting this course, or indeed, when simply redeveloping existing polcies, a number of less direct factors should also be taken on board - how will the policies sit with ISO17799 for instance (see later)?
The set of policies available here arecomprehensive, and are also fully compliant with ISO, HIPAA, SOX, COBIT, and other standards.
