In the case of IT security plans, there may not be specific deployments or deployment plans required. On the other hand, if you are installing additional security devices such as smart card readers, fingerprint readers, or additional routers, firewalls, or other network hardware/software, you have to develop a deployment plan as part of your security project plan.

The deployment plan should also take into account key stakeholder input; you do not want to interrupt network services during a key client visit or during a major project deliverable. Make sure your deployment plans and associated schedule are known to those that will be impacted by it, so that they can log off.You want to avoid surprise or unplanned disruptions to company operations to the greatest degree possible.The deployment plan should be coupled with pro-active communication plan so that everyone is on the same page (see the "Communication" section earlier in this chapter).
