Policy Development

Well-established IT policies can help ensure an optimal network environment in which data is stable, secure, and available. Effective IT policies can also help ensure operations continue under adverse situations, such as a natural disaster or other unplanned event.

Red Team Engineering can work with your organization to create clearly defined IT policies and procedures that provide a framework for treating information as real property to be protected from unauthorized access, modification, intrusion and destruction.

Policy and/or standards development can include items such as the following:

  • Information Security and Privacy
  • Information Classification
  • Information Security Infrastructure
  • Acceptable Use
  • Security Awareness and Training
  • Access Control
  • Password and Authentication
  • Compliance
  • Personnel Security
  • Risk Management
  • Physical and Environmental Security
  • Third Party & Business Associates Security
  • Network & Systems Operational Security
  • Mobile Computing and Telecommuting
  • Incident Response and Reporting
  • Intrusion Detection and Prevention
  • Malicious Software
  • Information Systems Acquisition Development and Maintenance
  • Internet and Email Security
  • Contingency Planning
  • Retention Archiving and Disposition
  • Business Continuity Planning (BCP) Security
  • Remote Access – Mobile Computing
  • Removable Media

A well-written IT Policy will serve as a best practices handbook for all employees within the organization and encourage their participation in preventing information breaches. These policies will help ensure controls are in place to protect information and will set the tone both internally and externally with regards to the importance of protecting your organization’s information.
