Submission One – Policies
Bank of Bowie requires a set of policies to guide their efforts. 
Write an Enterprise Information Security Policy for the Bank of Bowie. See Page 148, Table 4-1 for an example. Make certain the policy includes what the information security needs are and not how to achieve them. Include the five federal requirements and three additional requirements based on market competitors (local banks – such as MECU, SECU, PointBreeze Credit Union, 1st Mariner Bank, Rosedale Federal Savings and Loan). Please detail the mission, vision, and values to support the justification for the “information security needs”. 
Create an Issue-specific security policy (ISSP) on a relevant topic of your choosing. It can be for internal system users or for customers or services provided to customers. 
Create a system specific policy that addresses audit logs and backup of the audit logs. Make certain that it is compliant with the laws indicated in the background. 
Each policy document should be well organized per the outlines presented in the text or another reference. Each policy should be between 2 and 4 pages and it will be graded based on its completeness in addressing the topic, not on its length. Finally, it should follow all of the guidelines for each policy type in the text.Enterprise Information Security Policy
