Security Policy: a "no-brainer"

by mcarlsonus In reply to Consider ISO 17799 compli ...

Of course, we have a security policy - as should everyone. It's based on templates that look very much like checklists used for this standard. However, do we plan on going after this cert.? Probably not. Why? Just not worth the effort and expense.We've grown rather weary of the seemingly constant "ISO-chase." On top of that, there's already HIPAA, fer chrissakes!!
