MGT404: Fundamentals of Information Security Policy
This course is designed for IT professionals recently assigned security duties which include responsibility for creating and maintaining policy and procedures.
The Fundamentals of Information Security Policy course focuses on how to write, analyze and assess a wide range of security policies including issue and system specific policy. The student will develop skills and practical experience by completing the 24 guided labs that cover both the policy header and policy body or statement and learn to create successful policy that is accepted by the organization by being sensitive to the corporate culture.
Business needs change, the environment changes, new risks are always on the horizon, and critical systems are continually exposed to new vulnerabilities. Policy development and assessment is a never ending process. This is a hands-on, exercise intensive course on writing, implementing and assessing security policies. This course is for anyone who is responsible for writing security policies and procedures.
The quality of a SANS course is "exceptional" and the instructors are true experts with real experience.
