Only you can prevent security breaches.
IT policies and procedures are the backbone of your company’s defenses. When you practice good IT policy and planning, you promote information security.
More important than establishing healthy IT policies and procedures is conducting periodic reviews of those security policies and procedures, especially when working from home is more prevalent than ever. Laptops, desktops, applications, and other hardware and software are no longer confined to the office. To prevent security breaches, you need to perform regular risk assessments and introduce new security requirements to your enterprise.
Brock IT helps you review and implement new corporate IT policies and procedures. We design and introduce security measures that ensure the health and safety of your employees and prevent incidents. Our team ensures your employees understand what’s at stake when they violate a policy and supports your IT infrastructure with an extensive disaster recovery plan should the unthinkable happen. With our technicians, you’re never caught off-guard.
IT policy and planning are critical to building a successful business. Your organization won’t last long if your approach to policy is outdated. When a business demonstrates it can respond to security incidents quickly and without error, its employees are confident in their safety and the company’s longevity.
When Brock IT designs your IT policies and procedures, we do the following:
- Evaluate the latest IT best practices, tailoring our solution to your organization’s strategic plan
- Align IT investments with your company vision (capital planning and investment control, etc.)
- Determine your information technology needs and evaluates potential solutions
- Define key metrics and success factors to monitor and review results effectively
To maintain the integrity of your security posture, you need to update your policies and procedures regularly. When engaging in IT policy and planning, it’s challenging to identify which requirements are the best for your enterprise. Brock IT works with you to assess your current policies and design a new strategic plan. Read on to learn about a few critical policies we think you should consider.
The acceptable use policy is known as the cornerstone of all IT policies. It’s critical. Acceptable use outlines what is and isn’t an appropriate use of company assets and data and all behavior as it affects and reflects your organization. With an acceptable use policy in place, your employees can govern their technology use, reducing the risk of a security breach.
Remote access policy has become more critical than ever. Many organizations have already shifted into a hybrid work environment that accommodates both work-from-home and in-office labor. With a remote access policy, you define your company’s security requirements for connecting to its network from any endpoint. You determine whether users can connect using their tablet, laptop, desktop, or other devices. This measure helps prevent data loss.
The disaster recovery plan is essential to any larger-scale business continuity plan. Without it, your organization could collapse from a sudden cyberattack or natural disaster. Much like your corporate IT policies and procedures, your disaster recovery plans need routine review and revision. Cybersecurity threats and their solutions are always evolving, and your response needs to be as swift as possible to avoid prolonged downtime.
Your safety is our greatest concern. For your business to be successful, it needs to have the best in information security. Every good IT policy and procedure framework deserves the right security programs to back it up.
