Information security policies are not truly effective unless they are read and understood by every member of the organization.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
Information Shield, the leading provider of pre-written Information Security Policies, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Hitec Labs, developer of the leading policy management solution PolicyHub. As part of the agreement, Information Shield’s security policy content library will be integrated within the PolicyHub solution – giving users a unique, end-to-end solution for policy development, management and deployment.
"Information security policies are not truly effective unless they are read and understood by every member of the organization," said David Lineman, President of Information Shield. “PolicyHub provides an extremely robust solution for getting the right policies to the right people. Combing our leading security policy library with the automation of PolicyHub provides a complete policy management solution for clients.”
The requirement to distribute and track acknowledgement of written information security policies is a key requirement of all data protection laws and regulatory frameworks such as HIPAA/HiTECH, GLBA, FISMA, PCI-DSS and ISO 27002. PolicyHub simplifies this challenging requirement as it impacts hundreds or thousands of users.
Mike Adams, Senior Vice President, Hitec North America comments: “We are delighted to welcome Information Shield as a new Strategic Business Partner. Information Shield’s expert Policy & Control offerings complement Hitec’s PolicyHub in multiple vertical market sectors. This relationship will add to the value of our advanced Policy & Procedure Management Solution and provide Information Shield with a critical component to add to its already outstanding Policy content library.”
