SMB Policies and Procedures
SMB Policy and Procedures it is becoming a necessity to have on hand incase of audits, lawsuits, and proving that you meet the qualification of a particular framework or guidelines.
Who has time to write these things? I know that I do not, nor does most business owners, or HR staff of small to mid-size companies.
You can purchase some templates to get you started and then go from there.
Or you can use a Policy and Procedure service company to let them build and control them for you.
Government oversight and litigation has driven the need for proper IT Policies and Procedures even in Small to Mid-size businesses. The need for policies and procedures seems to be growing each year. Because of this it is best to have at least some basics covered for these things.
