Crafting an effective IT policy can be a daunting and expensive task. You could spend hours writing it yourself, but consider how much your time is worth. The average salary of an IT Director or Manager in the U.S. is about $185,000, depending on your geographic location, company and education. Over a year, that salary breaks down to about $89 per hour. If it takes you one work day to write an IT policy, that single policy cost you $712 ($89 x 8 hours).

Don’t have time to write a policy? You can pay a consultant hundreds of dollars to create one for you or buy a single policy online for $25, $50 or more. You may even be able to find a handful of policies bundled together, but these packages can cost over $500.

There is a better way.
