Policies & Procedures

Establish governance to stay protected.

It is common for organizations to slight the creation, documentation, and administration of security-related policies and procedures in favor of hands-on operational efforts. This often results in a weak or ineffective security program, and it may even jeopardize compliance. Security policies are living documents and need to be relevant and active in your organization at all times. It isn’t the document that reduces risk, it is the behavior of people who do what the policy document says that reduces risk.

Partner with HBS to establish policies and procedures to ensure your organization is in compliance and protected from vulnerabilities.
