Part 2: Create a Security Awareness Policy (0/6 completed)
Note: A strong security awareness policy is a key component of a strong organizational security posture. The effectiveness of a security awareness training policy and program will directly influence how well employees will value and protect the organization’s security position. When writing a security awareness training policy, consider the following questions:
· Is the policy statement as concise and readable as possible? For example, no more than one to three sentences.
· Is the entire policy as concise and readable as possible? For example, no more than two to three pages.
· Does the policy align well with other governing documents?
· Does the policy speak directly to the target audience?
· Does the policy state the “why” with only the minimal detail, and rely on standards or guidelines for the “how”? Policies should be written in such a way that they will not need frequent updates.
· Does the policy adequately describe scope and responsibilities?
· Are the policy’s revision, approval, and distribution documented?
After the policy has been approved, its success relies on proper delivery and understanding. To simply give a new employee 5 minutes to read and sign a policy during orientation is not enough. Focused and interactive “policy understanding” sessions should guarantee every employee understands the policy’s reasoning and necessity. Customizing these sessions according to department or function can drastically increase how much employees retain of and apply the training during their work. Repeat sessions reinforce the policies and keep material fresh in their minds.

o The organization wants to eliminate personal use of organization-owned IT assets and systems.
o The organization wants to monitor and control use of the e-mail system by implementing e-mail security controls.
