A new low cost, fast-track solution for managing and applying corporate security policies has been launched by consultancy and software solutions provider, Aconite. The Policy Foundation solution is a powerful combination of proven technology combined with the company's extensive consultancy experience.
Based on Aconite's Policy Navigator, a web based tool for identifying policies and guidelines based on business risk, Policy Foundation establishes an online security policy solution ready for pilot in ten days.
Through Policy Foundation, policy owners maintain and control policies and standards in a central system from which project teams identify relevant policies and guidelines. The end result is a consistently applied approach to security.
Intranet deployment also makes it easy to access the information across the enterprise, when you need it, and to integrate with other web resources, such as Project Lifecycle.
Finally with a simple mechanism for tracking and auditing projects, corporates can demonstrate compliance with industry standards, such as ISO 17799, and best practice as required by regulations such as those set out by the FSA and Sarbanes-Oxley.
Aconite's Policy Foundation solution provides corporates with a fast track approach to establishing the on-line security policy system and educate staff ready for live operation.
Rob Macmillan, Director of Consulting, Aconite, stated: "Industry best practice and successive company surveys have identified the information security policy as one of the cornerstones of securing today’s business environment. However, just having a policy in an A4 ring-binder is not the answer; the real value comes when your business and IT staff understand which parts are relevant to them and regularly apply the principles and standards which support the policy. Our Policy Foundation solution provides the answer."
