Why is this policy sold separately? Why is there a pack? Are you just trying to make money?

The policy is sold stand alone as it serves a specific purpose and often people just want this one policy. When you deploy information security policies into your organisation you may not need all of the policies so we make them available individually. The benefits of having individual policies are: 1. They can be shared only with the people that need the information 2. They can be allocated an owner to update them 3. You can deploy only the policies you need. In addition the 2022 update to the ISO27001 standard explicitly calls out having a headline policy and subordinate policies.

We estimate that on average it will take you less than 1 hour. The templates require information that you know so there is nothing complicated.

1. That you have installed antivirus software
Putting to one side that it goes without saying that you will have the policy, they are going to check that you have implemented and antivirus solution and that it is deployed appropriately across devices.
2. That you are monitoring and responding
They are going to check that you have reports and are monitoring the antivirus and that when incidents occur that you are responding to them appropriately.

There are many places where information security and protection of malware come into play. Familiarise yourself with them and make sure they are covered. Consider for example the transfer of information.

Top 3 Mistakes People Make for the ISO27001 Protection Against Malware Policy

You need to keep records and minutes and documented evidence. Recording reports, results, incidents and actions can be a low priority but they will check.
