Security Policies and Procedures are the building blocks of an information security program. This basic foundation includes all the rules for your organization to follow in regards to information security. Proper documentation is an essential part of any security program. In addition to helping demonstrate compliance, documentation allows employees and other stakeholders to identify responsibility and more efficiently perform their job functions.

Many organizations go online and download generic policies and procedures that they find on a website. These documents were not created with the knowledge of what the organization values or states as its primary goals. In the end, these security policies do not make sense in the context of the organization. In some cases, the implementation of the policies could be detrimental to the organization or cause the organization to be non-compliant with regulations they are required to follow. SecureState will build strong, enforceable information security policies that will provide guidance and direction to your employees. These information security policies are developed to meet the organization’s specific goals and needs; as well as aligning with regulations and standards that the organization must follow. These include: PCI-DSS, TR-39, GLBA, and the standards related to HIPAA, such as NIST 800-66.
With SecureState's Security Policies and Procedures program, our staff writes effective policies and procedures that are tailored to your organization. SecureState will document procedures and incorporate industry best practices while creating such policies. These policies are created by technical writers at SecureState who work with Subject Matter Experts (SME). This approach ensures the best of both worlds is applied to the creation of security policies and procedures.
