What is Policy Creation and Management?
Learn more about Policy Creation and Management
ECI’s Policy Creation and Management service covers the creation of documents that formalize the rules, expectations, and overall approach an organization uses to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data. It defines overall strategy and current security posture, with the procedures, standards, and guidelines to stay aligned with compliance and respond to data breaches.
Policy Creation and Management benefits
The creation of security policies provides the framework that guides the implementation of technical controls and sets clear expectations for security standards. As well as enabling your firm to meet its regulatory and compliance requirements (for example, to the SEC), policies help to improve your organization's efficiency and provide guidelines for incident response.
- Allow internal teams to focus on their business and worry less about security
- Quickly meet and manage regulatory requirements and alleviate pressure from your investors
- Meet most of the OCIE controls and requirements, as well as CIS Controls
The likelihood of an IT security breach is an ‘if’ not a ‘when’
When an outage affects your firm, what would you do? If you do not know how to identify, control, and recover from attacks your business is at risk. Firms must have effective, formal cybersecurity policies in place to respond to cyber threats.
Only 64% of organizations state that their company has formal incident response plans in place.
