Policies are the foundation of your cybersecurity program

Policies are the foundation of your cybersecurity program

Has your cybersecurity program been built on rock-solid foundation of expert security policies?

No business can architect any kind of adequate cybersecurity defense in the absence of well-crafted, customized policies. Security policies is what guides your staff in security-related behavior before, during, and after security failures – including both intentional and unintentional insider threats. If you want to be able to prevent security incidents, react calmly and knowledgeably after one, and then recover as quickly as possible – you need the right policies.

Policies works by weaving all the different elements of cybersecurity together and providing the clear-eyed guidance necessary to navigating cyberthreats. Crafting good policy is exceptionally challenging, however. The policies must be (1) sensible, (2) enforceable, and (3) achievable. They must (4) answer security questions before they even need to be asked. And they must both (5) meet today’s needs and (6) future-proof against tomorrow’s emerging threats, while (7) successfully aligning with overall business strategy. Finally, they (8) must be “right-sized” to ensure they provide the most comprehensive protection possible without introducing unnecessary overhead or interrupting business operations.

That’s a lot! Thankfully, Makaye Infosec policy development workshops allow our experts to engage one-on-one with your leadership team. We take the time to fully understand your needs and work with you hand-in-hand to draft bespoke, right-sized policies to support your business objectives and secure your organization.
