Next Five Warning Signs Your Security Policy Is Lacking-2 Next

Policies need to be refreshed annually to reflect shifts in compliance and technology (think mobile computing and social media). Are your policies and procedures living documents? Is your IT staff aware of the documents and do they use them on a daily basis?
