Develop an organizational information systems security policy
Include the Overview, Purpose, Scope, Policy, and Compliance sections of the policy.
Present the policy in a manner that complies with standardized system policies.
Address how such a directive will serve as an asset for the organization.
Keep in mind that the actual policy is only a portion of your research paper, and in addition to creating the actual policy, you should discuss the policy and outline why you integrated the specific criteria into the policy.
Your paper should reflect professional writing, current APA standards, and include at least 5 scholarly references (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles).
