Source: Policy

Definition #2 (Security)

A Policy is, simply, an official or prescribed plan or course of action.

A Policy itself provides no compliance and no enforcement.

Guidelines for making an effective Policy are as follows:

  • Policy as far as possible should be in writing.
  • They should be clearly understood by those who are supposed to implement them.
  • They should reflect the objectives of the Organizational Entity.
  • To ensure successful implementation of a Policy, the top managers and the subordinates who are supposed to implement them must participate in their formulation.
  • Conditions change, and policies must also change accordingly. Hence, a Policy must strike a reasonable balance between stability and flexibility.
  • Different policies in the Organizational Entity should not pull in different directions and should support one another.
  • Policies should not be detrimental to the interests of society.
  • Policies should be periodically reviewed in order to see whether they are to be modified, changed or completely abandoned.
