Policies that organization should implement

When talking about policies that the organization should be implemented would differ from each other. However, some organization will need to put some effort into building and maintain a security program which might be useful to the organization when needed.

A security program that has been matured will contain the following policies and procedures within an establishing organization. There would some policies and procedures that I have been overlooked in the post but those are the only that I could think of for now.

Policies and Procedure

On the other hand, IT Response Handling would be created to guide the organization in terms of how to manage the breach or compromised incident that might be impacted by the workflow. The main objective that this policy created is to limit the damage that will be caused to operations, customers and costs.
