Cyber security policies and procedures safeguard the business from cyber threats. Documented instruction will inform behaviour, roles and responsibilities that all staff must adhere to in the workplace. Without guidance, staff can develop poor practice, possibly compromising IT systems and data.
During on-boarding procedures, new staff should be issued with the policies so they develop good habits from the outset. Policies must be routinely reinforced to remind all staff of the standards required of them.
With the threat vector of cyber crime moving rapidly, and as your business changes, schedule time to review your cyber security policies on a regular basis to keep them relevant.
