Privacy Every organization requires some type of a network site security policy that will protect the organization's valuable assets -- everything from systems to data. The policy guidelines presented here will help you to establish an enterprise-wide program for how internal and external users will interact with a company's computer network, how the corporate computer architecture topology will be implemented, and where computer assets will be located. . . . Every organization requires some type of a network site security policy that will protect the organization's valuable assets -- everything from systems to data. The policy guidelines presented here will help you to establish an enterprise-wide program for how internal and external users will interact with a company's computer network, how the corporate computer architecture topology will be implemented, and where computer assets will be located.

To create a good site policy for computer security, you need to do two things: determine your company's expectations of proper computer and network use, and define the procedures to prevent and respond to security incidents. To this end, you, working with your policy committee, need also to consider and to agree upon the following:

- The organization's goals and direction. A university with building spread across a large campus will have different security concerns than a corporation in an office park.

- The site security policy has to conform to existing policies, rules, regulations, and laws the organization must adhere to. You'll, therefore, have to identify and consider these things while you develop the policy.

- If your network extends outside your facility, you'll have to consider security on perhaps a global scale. The policy should address local security issues caused by a remote site, as well remote system security issued caused by a local host or user.
