Security policies and controls

What good are security policies when it comes to technology? While some policies are merely written from a perspective of checking a box off on a checklist, most policies are written with good intentions to better protect a specific system in place at a company. Policies are also a good way to share best practices, by having a minimum standard in place at a company various departments can make use of it in securing their systems. They can also be shared with the wider security community in learning what works and doesn’t work for security systems.

Also, if they are a simple check off the box sort of checklist employees who are required to implement them will eventually just get to a point of doing the bare minimum.
