Title: System And Communications Protection Policy And Procedures - Creating Policy And Procedures
Ownership: Customer, Microsoft
Description: The organization: Develops, documents, and disseminates to personnel with system and communication roles and responsibilities: A system and communications protection policy that addresses purpose, scope, roles, responsibilities, management commitment, coordination among organizational entities, and compliance; and Procedures to facilitate the implementation of the system and communications protection policy and associated system and communications protection controls; and
Requirements: Azure addresses the system and communications policy as part of the Microsoft security policies, of which there are two sets: the Microsoft Security Policy (MSP) that is applicable to all personnel, and the Microsoft Security Program Policy (MSPP), which is applicable to all personnel that have a responsibility for security. The Microsoft Information Risk Management Council (IRMC) is the governance body with review and approval responsibility for the MSP and MSPP. Within Azure, the MSPP specifically applies to all personnel involved in designing, building, and operating Azure and across all information and processes used in the conduct of Microsoft business. All Azure personnel are accountable and responsible for complying with these guiding principles within their designated roles. The policy addresses the following: * Communications security * Communications across networks * Secure communications channels * Network design Additionally, the policy addresses the purpose, scope, roles, responsibilities, compliance requirements, and required coordination among the various Microsoft organizations that provide some level of support to all services. The policies indicate Microsoft management’s commitment and are a component of the risk management strategy which provides Azure personnel with a current set of clear and concise information security requirements. C+AI Security has published additional standards that facilitate and support the implementation of systems and communications protection controls in the Azure environment. These documents include: * Azure Access Control SOP * Azure Asset Management SOP * Azure Cryptographic Control SOP * Key Management Standard * Asset Classification Standard * Asset Protection Standards The MSP is available to all Microsoft personnel on the Microsoft Policy website on the Microsoft intranet, and the MSPP and Security Standards are available through the Liquid tool, also on the Microsoft intranet. The Azure SOPs are stored in the Azure Security, Privacy & Compliance SharePoint site. This SharePoint site is accessible to all Azure personnel. Service teams may supplement the Azure policies and procedures with offering-specific policies and procedures. Service-team-specific policies and procedures associated with system and communications are documented and stored within internal Azure SharePoint sites. Only personnel with authorized credentials, adequate levels of permission, legitimate need to know, and specific roles and responsibilities are given access to the service-team-specific policies or procedures.
