The dimensions of information security concerns are global, meaning that it is obligatory for organizations to implement policies and procedures for protection against the security vices in the information technology realm. Besides the information security policies and procedures, organizations also need to be proactive in implementing other categories of policies and procedure, including those aimed at reinforcing compliance with federal and state legal provisions, to ensure aggregate protection.
