Information Security Policy Intranet Project

Information Security Policy Intranet Project

Objective:

  • Modify information security policies for an imaginary company or organization.
  • Create an imaginary Intranet site.

Overview:

To fully understand why information security is important, one needs to understand both the value of information and the consequences of such information being compromised. At the very least, businesses hold sensitive information about their employees, financial results, and business plans for the year ahead. They may also hold trade secrets, research and other information that gives them a competitive edge.

As more and more information is stored and processed electronically and transmitted across company networks (to include the Intranet and Internet), the risk of unauthorized access increases and companies are presented with growing challenges of how best to protect it. One key is an information security awareness training program. The other key is to ensure that a company’s information security policies are up-to-date. The purpose of this project is to provide students first-hand, real-world experience with modifying information security policies and creating an Intranet to display this information.

What is your company vision/purpose statement?

The first thing to ask yourself is why you got into business in the first place. Doing this will help you clarify your business goals, which will later help you clarify your website’s goals. Whether it is you alone or a team of co-stakeholders, hashing out the basic purpose of your business can help you narrow down the same thing for your website. Sometimes, this is very simple — you own a roofing company, so your purpose is to do better roofing replacements and repairs than your competitors, and you got into it because it is the family business. Other times, you can go into a near existential crisis, trying to sort out why you became a real estate agent. Simply putting some words around the purpose of your business can work wonders for sorting out your long-term vision for what the website will say and do.

What is a mission statement?

A mission statement can be a one-sentence statement or a few statements describing the reason an organization, program, or company exists (what they do), which is used to guide priorities, activities, and responsibilities.

Example: New York Public Library: To inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities.

To support your mission statement, include the following on your site?

  • How long you have been in business?
  • The professional experience of your management team (or yourself).
  • The kind of customers you’ve worked with over the years.
  • Any awards you’ve received (that speaks to customer desires).
  •  Contact information or a link to your Contact Us page.·Links to other pages of your site that offer more information on your products and services
  • Any other unique facts about your business that demonstrate your sheer awesomeness.
