IT policies and procedures set up today's businesses for success. Each of these manuals is customized to suit their business—there are no two alike! Policies and procedures go hand in hand and must be regularly reviewed and kept up to date.
Policies are rules that everyone must follow: you, your staff, your clients, and your vendors. They ensure data security by defining, in writing, how a company plans on protecting their physical and IT assets. These policies often include rules to ensure IT compliance. Failure to comply with IT regulations for certain industries often results in fines and other consequences.
On the other hand, procedures list out the specific practices in order to adhere to decided policies. For example, given password requirements, the procedures to server setup will include enforcing these requirements.
Our staff will help you create the proper policies by interviewing top management and determining the goals of your business. We also offer training to ensure IT awareness among your staff.
