Implementing and adhering to organizational policies and procedures is a collaborative effort, requiring a true commitment from all personnel, including management, internal employees and users of system components, along with vendors, contractors, and other relevant third parties.
Additionally, by being aware of one’s roles and responsibilities as it pertains to Fulcrum information systems, all relevant parties are helping promote the Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (CIA) principles for information security in today’s world of growing cybersecurity challenges.
- Management Commitment: Responsibilities include providing overall direction, guidance, leadership and support for the entire information systems environment, while also assisting other applicable personnel in their day-to-day operations.
- Internal Employees and Users: Responsibilities include adhering to the organization’s information security policies, procedures, practices, and not undertaking any measures to alter such standards on any Fulcrum system components. Additionally, end users are to report instances of non-compliance to the VP of Operations, specifically those by other users. End users—while undertaking day-to-day operations—may also notice issues that could impede the safety and security of Fulcrum system components, and are to also report such instances immediately to the VP of Operations.
- Vendors, Contractors, other Third-Party Entities: Responsibilities for such individuals and organizations are much like those stated for end users: adhering to the organization’s information security policies, procedures, practices, and not undertaking any measure to alter such standards on any such system components.
