Key components will include the following:
– Policy Compliance
– Related Standards
Discuss each component and the specific information that can be included within each section of the policy.
Support your paper with five resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.

Please follow the attached Reflective Article Example Format, using whatever level one headers you like, that makes sense. Please keep in mind that you will not have an Article Reference header at the top of the paper, but you should still have a references section at the end.
Be sure to have a title page with running head and do not use a real company or organization name, make one up.
The purpose of this paper is to develop an information assurance policy. It should read like real guidance; you would deliver to your future or present company someday. The citations should be used to give clarity or credibility to a statement you are making, do not just cite something because you saw them say it that way or format their paper that way. Make a statement, then back it up with a citation from a scholarly source. Be sure to cover all that is described in the instructions for the assignment. It may be helpful to search the library for scholarly sources that describe what is in an “Information Assurance Policy,“ “Information Security Plan” or “Information Security Policy.”
You might also want to search in the library for “Information Assurance Policy “and “Security Plan” and look for relevant examples, but be careful to not copy/paste, cite all borrowed ideas and use scholarly sources for at least 5 of those citations.
