Here are some of the specific types of policies that Right Hand can assist you with:

Comprehensive security policy

A complete network security policy is a battle plan that guides your organization, ensuring that your data and network is guarded from potential security threats. Having a policy in place makes it possible to coordinate and enforce a security program and communicate security measures to third parties and external auditors.

Business continuity policy

A cyberattack can cause a major business disruption across departments and severely impact day-to-day operations, both in the short and long term. Every time your network or servers experience downtime, your business suffers an interruption in business continuity, which can have painful financial consequences. The business continuity policy, with a predetermined set of instructions and procedures, is designed to keep your business operations up and running despite an attack.

Incident response policy

As part of your business continuity plan, the incidence response policy outlines your organization’s response to an information security event. It identifies your response team and the role of each member, providing information about your system such as network and data flow diagrams, hardware inventory, and logging data. Furthermore, it outlines actions, means, and resources used to identify and recover compromised data.

Vendor management policy

Companies need a set of internal standards to address the process by which they acquire and manage their vendors. The Vendor Management Policy helps a business protect itself from cyber attacks originating through third-party vendor networks. The policy should include an assessment of each vendor’s ability to create, receive, maintain, or transmit confidential data on behalf of the company.
