Practical Lessons from 3 Decades of Security Policy Development

Security policies are crucial for robust cybersecurity programs, providing direction, defining roles, and setting controls. However, they often suffer from neglect, leading to unclear strategies and weakened programs. Join our session to understand the vital role of security policies, avoid common pitfalls, and learn to craft them effectively within frameworks like FISMA, ISO 27001/2, and COBIT 2019. Discover strategies for gaining acceptance through training and socialization, with real-world examples and a case study from the Arizona Department of Administration. Leave equipped with actionable insights and resources to strengthen your cybersecurity program with well-crafted policies.
