INFORMATION SECURITY POLICY PRACTICES AND STANDARDS

Management from all the communities of interest should consider policies as basis for all information security efforts. Policies direct that how issues should be addressed and technologies to be used. The Security policies are least costly controls to execute but most difficult to implement properly, as shaping policy should never conflict with laws& should be properly administered through dissemination.

Policy is plan of action used by organization to convey the instructions from management to those who make decisions and then perform duties. These are organizational laws.

Standards are more detailed statements of what should be done to comply with policy. Practices, procedures and guidelines explain how to comply with the policy. For a policy to be effective, it should be properly disseminated, read, understood and agreed by all members of the organization. The following Figure shows policies as the force which drives standards, which in turn drive guidelines.
