Here's some info I once received.
Information Security Policies Made Easy (ISPME) is the most comprehensive
collection of information security policies available. Written by
internationally known security consultant Charles Cresson Wood, ISPME
contains 600+ already-written policies. Available in both hardcopy and
floppy disk form, this product allows you to use your favorite word
processing package to "cut and paste" to create a set of policies relevant
to your computing environment. While most people use key-word search
facilities in their word processor, ISPME includes several indexes to help
locate the information of interest to you. Policies cover the following
topics: PC's, LAN's, E-Mail, Internet and more!
ISPME also provides extensive sections addressing: (1) how to write
information security policies, (2) how to gain management support, and
(3) how to identify standards that can be used to implement policies.
ISPME is available for the IBM-PC or Macintosh: MS Word and Word Perfect
for the IBM-PC, MS Word for the Macintosh, as well as ASCII flat files for
any other word processing package.
