Research Assignment

What binds well-formed IT Security Policies together is a sense of shared beliefs, purpose, and urgency. Within a forward-thinking organization, you will achieve that, in part, by establishing principles that create a shared vision, by empowering others to act, and by institutionalizing support processes.


In a minimum of 1000 words, write an APA formatted paper addressing which principles and concepts are important in the design of policy and how to organize the contents of an IT policy framework.


Save your document with a descriptive filename (e.g., assignment_5_smith.docx) and submit as an attachment.
