IT Security Policy
Why Does Your Business Need An IT Security Policy?
In most computer operating systems, there is the ability to login to the computer so that it retrieves the user’s configuration, settings and data. This is called a profile, however in most cases, out of the box, a profile is insecure and grants the user far too much in terms of privilege and the ability to make changes, install software, extract data which can have catastrophic consequences for the businesses computer security.
IT Security Policy Protects Your IT System and Maintains Consistency In Your Business
An IT security policy identifies the rules and procedures for all individuals accessing and using the companies IT systems.
- Using profiles that are configured by security policies, policies that remove the ability of the user to do certain things, policies that change the behaviour of the computer or enable features such as encryption and policies that configure the computer for the work place such as automatically installing software or setting up peripherals such as printers automatically.
- Deploying policies to secure each user within their profile and can help an organisation prevent costly security incidents and even if there is a breach or incident, the regulator will be far more lenient if there have been changes to secure the user profiles.
- Policies need to be configured correctly otherwise they can have consequences we could compare to locking the keys inside the safe, which is a situation that any business does not want to find themselves in.
