Text Messaging Sensitive and Confidential Information Policy released by Janco

Janco has added a critical security component to its CIO IT Infrastructure Policy Bundle with a policy that focuses on how to send secure sensitive data text messages via mobile devices

Janco Associates has developed a policy for managing security and compliance for clear text messages being sent via email or messaging apps that contain sensitive and confidential enterprise information.  In addition, this new policy has been added to Janco’s CIO IT Infrastructure Policy Bundle to complete the set of policies that every CIO needs to have in place to meet the expanding compliance and security requirements of today.

The CEO of Janco, Victor Janulaitis said, “Leakage of data is an issue that everyone is aware of, be it accidental or intentional.  Policies need to be put in place so everyone minimizes the risks that organizations face as the points of potential security breaches expand outside of the traditional office environment.”  The CEO added, “As the more people work outside of the confines of an office, use mobile devices, communicate via social networks, and compliance requirements expand, organizations are faced with a dilemma.  How can they balance security and compliance needs with the requirement of users to have both sensitive and confidential information away from the office and at their fingertips. That is why we have developed this complete set of rules that minimize the risks that organizations are facing. ”

The Text Messaging Sensitive and Confidential Information Policy as well as the other 16 policies in the CIO IT Infrastructure Policy Bundle are provided in MS WORD and PDF formats. The policies in the bundle are: Backup and Backup Retention Policy; Blog and Personal Web Site Policy; BYOD Access and Use Policy; Google Glass Policy; Incident Communication Plan Policy ; Internet, Email, Social Networking, Mobile Device, and Electronic Communication Policy; Mobile Device Access and Use Policy; Outsourcing Policy; Patch Management Policy; Physical and Virtual Server Security Policy; Record Management, Retention, and Disposition Policy; Sensitive Information Policy; Service Level Agreement Policy; Social Networking Policy; Telecommuting Policy; Text Messaging Sensitive and Confidential Policy; and, Travel, Laptop, PDA and Off-Site Meeting Policy.
