Who is it for?
How it Works
Holocron Cyber employs experienced security consultants to facilitate the delivery of the information security policy uplift. The methodology involves several phases, as outlined below:
Phase 1: Plan & Prepare
The organisation’s key stakeholders are engaged to define the scope and objectives for the policy uplift project. The team will identify and assess any current information security policies the organisation has implemented (if any).
Phase 2: Policy Development
Policies are either developed or updated, based on the information gathered during Phase 1, adhering to current security standards and best practices.
Phase 3: Consult & Implement
Input any feedback from key stakeholders is gathered to guarantee the policies are relevant to the organisation. The policies are communicated to employees to ensure they are effectively integrated into the organisation’s processes and systems.
Phase 4: Review & Maintain (Optional)
Holocron can optionally be onboarded to annually review and maintain information security policies to ensure they remain relevant to the organisation’s changing threat landscape and regulatory requirements.
The 3-phase approach can be customised to suit your timeframe and requirements, however, it will typically be a 4-week timeframe with the following breakdown of tasks:
Week 1: Initial consultation & Requirements gathering
Engage stakeholders in the organisation to understand the organisation’s business and its information security needs.
Review the organisation’s existing information security policies to identify missing policies and ensure consistency across the documents.
Weeks 2-3: Policy Development
Formulate policy documents for review, these typically include:
- Information Security Policy
- End User Security Policy
- Internet, Mobile and Phone Acceptable Use Policy
- Bring Your Own Device Policy
- Remote Access Policy
- Disaster Recovery Plan
- Cyber Incident Response Plan
- Cyber Incident Response Playbooks
Week 4: Review & Consultation
Meet with key stakeholders in the organisation to discuss the policy documents and confirm that they meet the needs of the organisation.
Distribute finalised policy documents to the organisation.
What it Encompasses

Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP)
A DRP is a comprehensive plan that outlines the steps an organisation will take to restore its critical systems and processes in the event of a disaster. The goal of a DRP is to minimise the impact of a disaster and ensure that systems and processes are quickly restored.
Cyber Incident Response Playbooks
Cyber Incident Response Playbooks are detailed, step-by-step guides that outline the procedures and processes an organisation will follow in the event of a cyber security incident. The playbooks are designed to allow an organisation to respond quickly and effectively to cyber threats, minimuse the damage caused, and restore operartions as soon as possible.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Policy
