Implement Security Policies and Risk Analysis

4. The fourth step consists of the definition of security policies. If your company does not have security policies, it is time to generate its definition and make them known to all your employees, security policies must have procedures and controls to be followed in detail. We recommend that you start documenting the following privacy policies as a minimum: data and information privacy policies, retention policies where we will describe how digital and physical data that we share internally or with clients are managed, data protection policies and finally a response plan to any incident committed. Deliverables of this activity: Privacy policy document and a training plan to share with employees.

5. The fifth step is to generate a risk analysis with established controls. In this step, the security team will undertake the task of identifying the company’s risks, followed by determining their probability and impact in order to subsequently find a solution to each identified risk. It is advisable to carry out this exercise on a quarterly basis, being able to update the new risks and their possible solutions. Deliverables of this activity: List of risks in the company and solutions and probability matrix of each risk.
