Information Shield, a global provider of information security policy and compliance products, announced the latest release of their PolicyShield Security Policy Subscription. This latest release include new sample security policies covering operational security, including data backup, removable media (USB), malicious software, network security and information disposal.

"Our customers save thousands of dollars a year in researching and writing new security policies.”
The latest release contains 44 new sample information security policies, all with expert commentary and tied to the ISO 27002 framework. New sample documents include high priority topics like employee-owned devices (BYOD) and videoconferencing security.
About the PolicyShield Security Policy Subscription
PolicyShield is the first service that enables organizations to keep written information security policies updated based on the latest threats. Many organizations don’t have the time or expertise to monitor the information security landscape for new threats and then prioritize and integrate them into written policies. PolicyShield is designed to reduce the burden on in-house staff and allow them to focus on other critical information security tasks.
PolicyShield is based on Information Security Policies Made Easy by Charles Cresson Wood, CISSP, CISM, CISA, which has been the “gold-standard” security policy reference library and used by more than 9000 customers in 60 different countries.

Time Saving Policy Development Tools - The PolicyShield Security Policy Resource Library contains a growing list of over 90 sample templates, checklists, whitepapers, and forms to help save time in policy development and deployment.
Easy-to-Use Web Interface - PolicyShield's secure web-based system is easy to navigate and allows you to quickly locate the information you need, when you need it. Browse or search for security policies by keyword, ISO category or topic.
