Security Compliance Policies- Part 2

As we started discussing a few weeks ago, information security is a key component of keeping your company’s data secure. Security policies include processes for accessing and handling information, whether on-site or remotely. Here are some more security policies that you should have in place for your business.

Account and Password Policy
More than just setting minimum password requirements such as length and complexity, this policy should define the different types of accounts, their use and management lifecycle, and any additional controls to be used such as one-time passwords (OTP) or multi-factor authentication (MFA).

Security Logging Policy
Centralized logging is essential to monitoring, response, and investigation during security incidents. Implementing a sound logging policy and strategy prior to a security incident can make response and mitigation much more effective.

Endpoint Security Policy
This policy defines the minimum security controls that will be put in place on a company’s endpoints. Providing a sound endpoint security solution and strategy can be one of the most effective ways to reduce the risk of a successful attack.

Vulnerability Management Policy
Vulnerability management is essential to understanding your organization’s risk posture as well as how effective system and device patching processes are.

Mobile Device Management and Access Policy
Mobile device management and access policy are absolutely essential for any company that has a mobile workforce, and it can be critical to ensure secure remote access. This policy defines what types of devices can access a company’s resources and what minimum controls are required for authorization.
