    Slide 6 - Policies/Standards vs. Requirements

    • Similarities
    • express desire or worth, rather than fact
    • primarily statements in the optative mood, they specify what must or ought to be done
    • Differences
    • scope of policies is broader than requirements and standards often have legal implications
    • privacy policies and standards are more charged with societal values
    • policies and standards are more open-ended than requirements
    • requirements cover one system; policies often cover several and standards cover many
    • Alignment
    • Need to bring policy, stakeholder values, requirements, and standards into agreement
