CM0088 Organizational Policy Documenting cyber security policies is crucial for several reasons, paramount among them being the establishment of a clear, consistent framework for managing and protecting an organization's information assets. Such documentation serves as a foundational guideline that outlines the principles, procedures, and responsibilities that govern the security of information. Having well-documented security policies ensures that everyone in the organization, from the top management to the newest employee, is on the same page regarding security expectations and behaviors. It provides a reference point for all staff, helping them understand their roles and responsibilities in safeguarding sensitive data. By clearly defining what is expected, employees are better equipped to follow best practices and avoid actions that could compromise security. These policies act as a guide for implementing technical controls and security measures. They inform the selection, development, and maintenance of security tools and protocols, ensuring that there is a methodical approach to securing the organization's digital assets. In the event of a security incident, having a documented policy in place provides a roadmap for response and recovery, reducing the time and resources spent in mitigating the issue. As cybersecurity in space is an area where regulatory compliance is becoming increasingly stringent, having documented information security policies is often a legal or regulatory requirement, and not simply a best practice.
