The Question

Write an essay on the topic, ?Building and implementing a successful cybersecurity policy?. The following questions should be covered in the essay:

  1. What would be a successful cybersecurity policy?
  2. What are the ingredients of a typical cybersecurity policy?
  3. How should the various elements of a cybersecurity policy be articulated?
  4. What considerations should there be in order to successfully implement the policy?
  5. How can you assure the ongoing success of the policy?

Directions:

  • Your paper should be 3-4 pages in length, not including the title or reference pages.
  • Your paper must follow academic writing standards and APA style guidelines, as appropriate. (Please refer to the APA Sample attachment and compare your paper to it)
  • You are strongly encouraged to submit all assignments to the Turnitin Originality Check prior to submitting them to your instructor for grading. (SIMILARITY MUST NOT EXCEED 20%)

Include a 5-sentences conclusion at the end of your paper (Your conclusion should synthesize rather than repeat the main ideas verbatim. Usually, the first sentence of the conclusion is a rephrasing of the thesis. The conclusion reminds the reader what your paper is about and allows you to make a final point without introducing new information.)

The function of management is to plan, organize, lead, and control the operations of an organization (Robbins & Coulter, 2007) and includes strategic management. Strategic

 

management is an approach in which organizations create a competitive advantage, enhance

 

productivity, and establish long-term financial performance. Chandler (as cited in Whittington,

 

2008) defines strategy as ?the determination of the basic long-term goals and objectives of an

The SMM assumes the organizational learning theory, which states that an organization

 

adapts to the changing environment and uses gathered knowledge to improve the fit between

 

itself and the environment. The SMM also assumes the organization be a learning organization

 

in which the gathered knowledge can be used to change behavior and reflect new knowledge

perspective by including corporate social responsibility. Epstein also states that organizations

 

have a responsibility to stakeholders to improve management practices in order to add value by

 

addressing corporate social, environmental and economic impacts (Epstein, 2008).

 

Organizational leaders are the strategic decision makers of a company and have a

 

responsibility to stakeholders (Wheelen & Hunger 2008). Therefore, it is important to have an

 

understanding of why corporate sustainability is important, and how the nine principles of

 

sustainability performance guide strategic management.

include the norms and beliefs held by society; IDENTIFYING THE BEST PRACTICES IN STRATEGIC 6 Discretionary responsibilities are other responsibilities taken on by the

 

organization including voluntary activities and philanthropic contributions

 

(Carroll, 1979). The importance of corporate sustainability, therefore, is that an organization is responsible for

 

financial performance, but it also has additional responsibilities to stakeholders and society in

 

general.

 

The Nine Principles of Sustainability Performance

 

The nine principles, as presented by Epstein and Roy (2003) (see Table 1), further define

 

sustainability, are measureable, and can easily be incorporated into strategic management

 

(Epstein, 2008). These principles include ethics, governance, transparency, business

 

relationships, financial return, community involvement, value of products and services,

 

employment practices and protection of the environment. A table or figure should fit all on one page

 

even if there is a gap left in your paper. It

 

is easier for the reader to view the table or

 

figure when presented as a whole instead

 

of split on two pages. IDENTIFYING THE BEST PRACTICES IN STRATEGIC 7 Table 1

1. Ethics The company establishes, promotes, monitors and maintains

Walgreens Company Walgreens Company is a retail drugstore that is in the primary business of prescription

 

and non-prescription drugs, and general merchandise including beauty care, personal care,

 

household items, photofinishing, greeting cards, and seasonal items (Reuters, 2010). More

 

recently, the organization diversified its offerings through worksite healthcare facilities, home

 

care facilities, specialty pharmacies, and mail service pharmacies (Walgreens Company, 2010). IDENTIFYING THE BEST PRACTICES IN STRATEGIC 8 Walgreen Company established a strong organizational culture focusing on consumer and

 

employee satisfaction. The mission of Walgreens is:

 

We will provide the most convenient access to consumer goods and services . . .

 

and pharmacy, health and wellness services . . . in America. We will earn the

 

trust of our customers and build shareholder value. We will treat each other with

 

respect and dignity and do the same for all we serve. We will offer employees of

 

all backgrounds a place to build a career. (Walgreens, 2010a, para. 1)

Conclusion Strategic management and corporate sustainability are two important practices in today?s
