The SOS Information Security Policies


The SOS Information Security Policies have been drawn from the extensive experience of senior Information Security Consultants who have delivered business systems and security sensitive projects across the world. Based upon the foundation of ISO 17799, they are both extensive and up to date, and may be modified and adopted by your organization to form the basis of an information security conscious culture.

Whilst information security policies lay a solid foundation for the development and implementation of secure practices within an organization, the Policies themselves are too often neither instructional nor descriptive. They simply represent the rules which must be adhered to.

Compliance with them, however, actually requires an understanding by staff of not only the individual policies but also of the circumstances in which such compliance is expected in their day-today activities. Knowing the Policies is only one half of the equation - staff need to know how they should comply, from a procedural perspective.

For this reason, the SOS/RUsecure Information Security Policies also include 3 additional key features :-

  • Explanatory notes providing background to each Policy
  • Some of the key information security issues which should be considered when implementing the Policy in question
  • The related ISO 17799 reference(s). This was approved by ISO in October 2000 and is a key standard against which information security can be measured. The references within the policies ensure that easy cross referencing is possible.
