Security Policy for a small business

I am looking for a security policy for a small business to use for their employees.
Are there any good templates to start from?

"Security Policy" covers a lot of ground.  I can suggest looking over the SANS Security Policy template library though.

I suggest your policy follows the ISO 27001 headings such as these but it may be quite non-trivial to cover all quickly - esp if you intend to make it simpler at the first place (for small set)

Otherwise, go specific for a "scoped" policies in area of main concern. Here is one comprehensive coverage of samples and toolkit for the various IT & cyber security scope

Additional supplementary alternatives include
-Clean desk policy
-Computer and e-mail acceptable use policy
-Internet acceptable use policy
-Password protection policy
-Social media and blogging policies
-Personnel access/changes policy

If you wanted a more clean cut to have small win or glimpse to poll the stakeholders, you may check out the attached (though can be quite old). It give some sensing on coverage and simple straight to the point mandates
