# Policy Practice
The organizational policies, jurisdictional context and governance of a software development project have an important impact on end user privacy and security.
We would like to **explore practices in the policy and governance domain** which have significant impact on security and privacy. We are interesting in practices which are related to organisational policies, jurisdictional context and governance of software development projects.
The following practices related to the policy aspect of software development impact end user privacy and security.
We've put together a short starter list of domains of practice for review and discussion which includes:
