Security template for the RSS and PODS


This security plan asks the health department a variety of security questions regarding transport, physical security, identification, access control, physical barriers, lighting, communications, and security breaches for both the RSS and the POD sites.  The plan was developed as a template and can be adapted to ask questions relative to specific situations.

I would agree this is not a plan, but a useful planning tool.  It does need additional work.

While I don't think this document can be called a plan, I do think it is a useful planning tool.  It presents important questions that must be considered in RSS and POD security planning.  However, I don't believe that this tool alone would produce a user-friendly plan.  Additional work would be needed.

The tool includes comprehensive, useful points to consider in creating security plans for RSS and PODs, but it is not a template.

This document is more of a checklist and information gathering tool than a plan template.  It takes you through the different points to look for and questions to ask when doing a site assessment.
