Abstract

This chapter presents issues, trends, controversies and problems motivating organizations to establish information security policies or deter them from doing so. Its main thrust is to propose that organizations must take the issue of information security very seriously and provide solutions in their organizations. Information resources are a huge investment and the role information plays in any organization is no longer doubted. Increasing awareness of vulnerabilities to information resources is reason for information security policies. Policies provide opportunities to recognize the importance of procedures and mechanisms to enhance information security. Simultaneously avenues by which information may be compromised have increased many-fold. To counter the threats and risks and assure confidentiality, availability, accessibility, integrity, and authenticity of information, organizations draw up and set up information security policies.
