The IT Policy refers to those plans, positions and guidelines of organization which influence its decisions in support of sustainable and secured IT operations. There are various types and forms of policy. Among the range of policy types are: broad policy which enunciates organization-wide direction; more specific policy which may be developed for a particular function(s) such as IT, HR, Information Security, Physical Security etc. The activity of developing policy generally involves research, analysis, consultation and synthesis of information to produce recommendations. The IT policies provide a framework for best practice that can be followed by all employees. They help to ensure risk is minimized and that any security incidents are effectively responded to. The policies will also help turn staff into participants in the organization’s efforts to secure its information assets, and the process of developing these policies will help to define an organization’s information assets. IT policy defines the organization’s attitude to information, and announces internally and externally that information is an asset, the property of the organization, and is to be protected from unauthorized access, modification, disclosure, and destruction.
