Info Classification Policy: Guidelines & Best Practices

An Information Classification Policy is a set of guidelines and procedures that are designed to ensure that an organization’s data and information is classified in an appropriate manner. It outlines the categories of information, the types of data and information that should be included in each category, and the security measures that should be taken to protect the information. The policy also outlines the roles and responsibilities of the various personnel involved in the classification process, such as the data custodians and the data owners. The policy should also include a process for handling any changes or updates to the classification scheme. Finally, the policy should outline the consequences for failing to adhere to the classification policy, such as disciplinary action or termination of employment.
