  2. Policies for Information Security • The Policies for Information Security must come from all corners of an organization which includes the general staff. • TheseSecurity Policies are the basis for all information security planning, design and deployment.

  3. Information Security Policies • Such Security Policies should be able to provide a direction on how the issues should be handled and what are the best technologies to be used. • These policies will direct how a particular software or equipment should work. This specific information is placed in the standards, procedures and practices.

  4. Qualitative Security Policies • The starting and the ending point of any qualitative security programs is the policy that has been taken. • These security policies are very easy to decide on but they are very difficult to implement in a proper manner.

  8. Issue-specific Security Policies • InIssue-specific Security Policy, the scope and applicability of the security policy is examined. • The technologies that need to be used are addressed.

  9. Issue-specific Security Policies • Authorization of user access, privacy protection, fair and responsible use of the technology is addressed. • Often, the users are prohibited from using the information in a manner that can harm others.

  10. System-specific Security Policies • System-specific Security Policies often include standards and procedures to be implemented while maintaining of systems. • This security policy is also used to address the implementation and configuration of technology as well as the behavior of the people.

  11. Information Security Blueprint • After the organization develops the information security policies and standards, the information security department will develop the blueprint for the information security program.

  12. Information Security Blueprint • The Information Security Department will list all the information assets and prioritizes the threats and dangers of the organization, a risk assessment analysis is conducted. • These assessments will help in the design of the security blueprint for the organization.

  13. Security Program Elements • This security blueprint will act as the basis for the design, selection and implementation of all Security Program Elements. • Such Security Program Elements include policy implementation, ongoing policy management, risk management programs, education and training programs technological controls and maintenance of the security programs.
