Many organisations now rely totally on their electronic environment for the day to day processing and the management of their business. The issues of information management, confidentiality, competitive edge and profitability are intrinsically linked, but unfortunately, information in the electronic world is not attributed with the same degree of respect with regard to security as the paper document managed to achieve in its heyday.

The first step towards creating a secure electronic environment is to define the rules and guidelines for managing, operating and using the organisation’s information systems.  This first step is critical and involves developing policies and procedures that document the organisation’s intentions to diligently manage electronic information throughout its life cycle and keep it safe from unauthorised persons.

To be successful, IT Security Policies must be based on plain old common sense and all staff, contractors and third parties should be required to understand their obligations. Protocol Policy Systems has developed a generic set of policies and procedures that can be specifically tailored for any IT environment and any business situation. Text, graphics and formatting can be customised to suit the culture of the business.

What is Policy Management as a Service?

Protocol Policy Systems has developed Policy Management as a Service to deliver a generic set of policies and procedures that can be specifically tailored for any IT environment and any business situation. Text, graphics and formatting can be customised to suit the culture of the business.

The policies are presented for three categories of user types – General User, Manager and Technical User. All policy statements are mapped to recognised international standards and recommended best practice.

Policy Management as a Service makes the development, delivery and maintenance of IT Policies very easy. A large range of customisation options are available; allowing for changes such as adding links to other organisational policies including HR, standards, procedures, guidelines and practices, compliance documents, designs and drawings.

The system creates a dynamic tool which can be used by all levels of staff in the organisation.

Why do you need the system

Organisations exist in an ever changing technological world and to ensure they can continue to operate in this environment and do business they must be aware of security issues and take the appropriate measures that protect key assets, i.e.:-

People

Business and the infrastructure to support the business

Information and services

Security attacks are increasing all the time and it is important that systems and information can be protected against these threats.  The first step in achieving this is to document the rules around system configuration and system use.  By complying with these written guidelines management can be sure they are doing everything they can to protect both systems and people from a security threat.

It is important to remember that the policies protect staff just as much as they do the organisation. Policies are the first very important step in managing IT system security.
