Cybersecurity policies and procedures are the specific objectives and guidelines a company follows to ensure its data protection practices comply with applicable regulations and are in line with the organization’s objectives and goals. These documents are the foundation on which cybersecurity practices are built, including risk management and incident response. They ensure compliance with cybersecurity frameworks, such as ISO 27002, NIST 800-53, the Secure Controls Framework (SCF), and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.Get a quote

A foundation for cybersecurity governance
Policies and procedures are both essential for your organization's cybersecurity program. Policies are the overall, strategic intentions and goals of your security efforts. They provide direction and clarity for your cybersecurity objectives. They answer the question, "What are we doing?" Procedures, on the other hand, are the specific, repeatable methods in which tasks are performed. They answer the question, "How will we do this?"
Together, policies and procedures provide a clear path toward cybersecurity framework compliance. They detail the goals of the organization's efforts and the specific methods in which specific security processes will be implemented.
Periodic vulnerability assessments will complement a strong set of policies and procedures. As cybersecurity threats and requirements evolve, procedures also need to adapt. If your current cybersecurity policies don’t address the current threat landscape and your IT environment has changed, it is likely time for a vulnerability assessment and a set of updated policies and procedures.
