Guideline on developing a departmental security plan .: BT39-14/2013E-PDF

"The purpose of this guideline is to assist departments in meeting the requirements of the Policy on Government Security (PGS) and the Directive on Departmental Security Management (DDSM) to develop a departmental security plan (DSP) that details decisions for managing security risks and outlines strategies, goals, objectives, priorities and timelines for improving departmental security. It describes an approach to developing the DSP that is based upon a process of security risk management (SRM) to ensure that decisions for managing security risks are substantiated through thorough analyses and supported by processes which are rigorous, repeatable, and documented. This approach is intended to support the development of a DSP that provides Deputy Heads (DH) and senior managers with an integrated view of departmental security requirements that is aligned with the strategic priorities, programs, plans, processes, and other practices within each department"--Purpose, p.
