Web policies help to form your security policy. Having secure and defined web policies will reduce your business’ liabilities, helping to reduce risk and keep your employees and IT systems safe.
Without a defined web policy, your business may be exposed to unnecessary and dangerous risks. Astute web policy will reduce your business’ ‘attack surface’, your IT Achilles’ heels.
This can be achieved in a number of ways, dependent on the scope of the web policy you desire, such as:
- Blocking or limiting social media access
- Blocking of certain categories of website
- Permitting specific categories of website
- Logging user access
- Preventing access to TOR network (the dark web)
There are several types of strategy that can be adopted that can be tailored around your business’ requirements. Different software and hardware can be installed and implemented for businesses of different sizes and structures, whether you have 1 system or 1000. This can be especially important for networks that have to comply with industry standards.
