Aligning your customer’s to a set of standards seems easy. You create questions around privacy, security, and infrastructure and ensure they meet business goals. What if you have outdated, too broad, or non-existent standards? What if you need more and are unsure where to look?
If you are looking to begin or build on your standards library, there are good options included with myITprocess. These templates refer to popular industry best practices and frameworks. Even if you need generic, non-compliance standards, the default template is a great place to begin.
