Written Information Security Program (WISP)

What is Written Information Security Program (WISP)?

Written Information Security Program (WISP) is a written plan or program that outlines an organization's approach to protecting sensitive information and ensuring data security. It typically includes policies, procedures, and guidelines related to information security practices, risk management, incident response, and employee responsibilities.

Why your organization needs Written Information Security Program (WISP)?

Today, the risk of security incidents and potential breaches is higher than ever before. Breaches affect large numbers of financial organizations, healthcare organizations, and public-sector entities. But any company in any industry could be a potential target. Your own financial records, key information, or other confidential information could be an attractive target for attackers as the information they could potentially sell or manipulate in other ways to make a profit. Regardless of your organization's size or the type of data that you handle, your responsibility is to mitigate the risk of having it lost, altered, or stolen.
