Are you an IT security policy maker within your organization? Do you wish to start building a set of IT security policies and have no clue how to start? My suggestion is to start, by using a generic template from a reliable source such as, sans.org and adapt the template to your own requirements. It is quite tough to start from scratch, and you might miss important elements of a security policy! IT Security policies help you establish high-level rules to protect IT resources and data within your organization. You can also have policies referring to standards and guidelines or best practices!
For instance, SANS Institute provides valuable information related to the development of policies such as, templates and guidelines.
