Information Shield, the leading provider of pre-written Information Security Policies, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with TraceSecurity, a pioneer in cloud-based information security and compliance management solutions. As part of the agreement, Information Shield’s Common Policy Library (CPL) will be integrated within TraceCSO – giving users the ability to quickly develop, manage and enforce information security policies across the enterprise.
“Information security policies provide the foundation for successful IT security governance,” said David Lineman, president of Information Shield. “This integration enhances TraceCSO’s policy management offering by providing customers instant access to a library of best-practices that have proven effective in over 11,000 organizations.”
The CPL is comprehensive library of 40+ sample security policy documents that cover over 200 security topics.

TraceCSO users can leverage the CPL to quickly build a library of best practice information security policies, customize them to their organization’s unique needs, and eliminate the research time that is typically required when writing policies from scratch. The CPL also provides security policy support for key areas of TraceCSO including risk management, audit, compliance assessment, incident management, vulnerability scanning and vendor management.
“Seamless integration of the CPL into TraceCSO allows the TraceCSO customer base to expedite their policy development with access to a set of always-current best practice policies,” said Peter Stewart, president and CEO of TraceSecurity. “The Information Shield integration exemplifies the value TraceSecurity places on strategic partnerships.
