Data protection mechanisms allow a greater level of security for information than can be achieved with system-based protection mechanisms alone. Without data protection mechanisms, the potential exists that information assets could be exposed to an unnecessarily high level of risk, particularly in circumstances where those assets are taken out of the information system.
This Data Protection Policy Template includes the following sections:
- Default policy statements that define what the enterprise must do.
- Default procedures that define how the enterprise must do it.
- Baseline recommendations to customize the template to individual enterprise requirements.
Use this and the related templates to build an efficient and effective enterprise Security Policy.
