Communication is critical when you are planning your IT security project plan. Users can help secure the network by following the security policies and reporting suspicious activity.Your communication plan should address the communication needs of each stakeholder group. The communication plan is also an opportunity to distribute a positive message about the project and its progress.
Assess each stakeholder group individually and develop the appropriate communication plans (e.g., executives may want a high-level "dashboard" report on a quarterly or monthly basis, while users may want a more detailed understanding of how the project is going. If you are sending out long weekly e-mail updates, chances are good that most people will not read them. If you are printing out memos in a company that relies on email, you are also missing your audience. The frequency of communication, the content of the communication, and the medium for communication are all important aspects of developing a successful communication plan for your IT security project plan.
