PolicyShield Security Policy Subscription Addresses Latest Risks of FAX/Printer/Copier Storage

HOUSTON, Texas – October 27, 2010 – In response to the increasing risks to personal information left accidentally on multi-function office machines such as printers, FAX and copying machines, the FDIC recently issued new guidance to financial institutions on proper controls for managing these devices. Information Shield  reports that the latest release of their PolicyShield Security Policy Subscription addresses all of the control points recommended by the FDIC.

“We have been covering the risks of new office products since the first incidents over a year ago, and our current library addresses all of the recommendations from the current FDIC guidance.” said David Lineman, president of Information Shield. ” PolicyShield was designed to help organizations keep their policies updated against the latest threats. In the case of newer, more sophisticated office products, both new techology and new regulations have increased the risk of using these devices to procesess and store sensitive data. ”

About the PolicyShield Security Policy Subscription Service

PolicyShield contains a comprehensive library of over 1700 pre-written sample information security and data privacy policies. It is based on Information Shield’s Consolidated Policy Library (CPL) which allows organizations to easily map their existing policies to multiple regulations including PCI-DSS, HIPAA, GLBA, NERC-CIP and FISMA.

PolicyShield is the first service that enables organizations to keep written security policies updated based on the latest threats. Many organizations don’t have the time or expertise to monitor the information security landscape for new threats and then prioritize and integrate them into written policies. PolicyShield is designed to reduce the burden on in-house staff and allow them to focus on other critical information security tasks.

PolicyShield is based on Information Security Policies Made Easy by Charles Cresson Wood, CISSP, CISM, CISA, which has been the “gold-standard” security policy reference library and used by more than 7000 customers in 59 different countries. PolicyShield takes this leading resource to the next level with more content, regular updates and an improved web-based interface.
