Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 19, 2012

Information Shield, a global provider of information security policy and compliance products, announced the latest release of Information Security Roles and Responsibilities Made Easy (ISRRME) by Charles Cresson Wood. Now in its third revision, this library includes over 70 time-saving information security templates and expert advice designed to streamline the process of defining information security roles and responsibilities. This updated version also includes the results of our most recent and exclusive Information Security Staffing Survey, which enables organizations to benchmark their information security staffing against their peers.

Every federal and industry-specific information security mandate such as HIPAA, GLBA, and PCI-DDS, requires organizations to assign and document information security roles and responsibilities,” said David Lineman, president and CEO of Information Shield. Information Security Roles and Responsibilities Made Easy is the only product available that allows companies to quickly and effectively document the security responsibilities of over 70 different departments and job functions. Organizations can save thousands of dollars and hundreds of man-hours using this library.”

Studies show that one of the most important steps, that top management organizations can and must take in the information security area, is to clearly and logically define roles and responsibilities for internal staff, business partners, contractors, consultants, and other third parties, said the author and independent information security consultant Charles Cresson Wood, MBA, MSE, CISM, CISA, CISSP. Organizations can achieve dramatic time and cost savings over the long haul with a properly defined information security organization. For example, a recent Verizon study shows that the costs of a data breach are on average 35% less if the organization has established a CISO Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or similar position.
