A system for disseminating information security management objectives is considered fundamental to obtain employee commitment. One way to communicate entity-centric information security objectives is clear and concise policies. Information security management‘s role in policy formulation includes considering the control environment, risk assessments, information, communication, and activities. Though policies are an important means to convey expected behavior, even more critical is determining the effectiveness of adopted IT safeguarding objectives. Effectiveness evaluation requires measurement against established information security standards. Consequently, ratiocinative information security standards must be designed and implemented.
