Brief and simple, this free cyber security policy template was created by Emma Osborn (of OSCSRC Ltd) to help small business create their first cyber security policy document.
*If you use the free cyber security policy, you must retain the credit for SEQ Legal. However, if you purchase the equivalent document on website-contracts.co.uk, you will get access to a copy of the document that omits the credit.
There are three main parts to the policy. First, the introduction to the policy puts the document in context, provides for key contact information and identifies the role of employees and and contractors. Second, the policy sets out some specific cyber security requirements which all personnel should adhere to. These incldue requirements relating to passwords, the circumvention of security measures, reporting security breaches, use of non-company devices for connecting to company systems, software installation and risky internet behaviour. Third, the policy identifies the types of action which will constitute system misuse - which may constitute a disciplinary issue.
It should be stressed that this simple policy is not suitable for more complex organisations.
