The purpose of this paper is to outline the strategies and managing processes behind implementing a successful Security Policy. Additionally, I will give recommendations for the creation of a Security Awareness Program, where the main objective will be to provide staff members with a better, if not much improved understanding of the issues stated in a security policy. We will also be focusing on significantly reducing the integration period of the security policy, by way of proper explanation of all of the items pointed out in a formal security policy document.
This paper is by no means intended to be a complete reference on the process of building a security policy or the development of a security awareness course. Instead, it was created with the idea of providing the reader with a reliable source of advice, various recommendations and useful tips gathered from my personal experiences while building and developing security policies, as well as conducting security awareness courses. This document will also provide you with a sample security newsletter, best practises concerning various information security threats, as well as discuss in detail some of the most common security problems which companies are facing every day (concentrating specifically on security problems endangering somehow the continuity and the proper functionality of the institution).
