Implementing Standards in Security
Management’s biggest challenge lies not in the writing of specific policies and standards but in the orderly development and implementation of policies and standards. Security policies, standards, procedures, and guidelines are all different from each other, but they also interact with each other in a variety of ways. It’s important to understand these differences and relationships, and also to recognize the different types of policies and their applications. To successfully develop and implement information security policies, standards, guidelines, and procedures, you must ensure that your efforts are consistent with the organization’s mission, goals, and objectives.
