COMPANY POLICIES

Your policy shouldnt be a wholly negative affair. Obviously, it needs to set out the rules for your employees online behavior. But it should also stress how, used properly, the Internet can really improve the way you do business even for something as simple as buying train tickets.

POLICY REGARDING COMPUTER USAGE


The Internet is a powerful tool for improving your business efficiency. But it can also be a great way for employees to waste time, damage the security of your IT system and give you legal headaches. If you do not already have an Internet policy, you should actively consider putting one in place. A well-thought-out policy can help you enjoy the benefits of the Internet while reducing the pitfalls. It encourages employees to use the Internet effectively, states what you consider to be acceptable use, and sets up procedures to minimize security and legal risks. This briefing outlines: The main elements you need to include in your Internet policy. How to implement and enforce this policy.

1 Access rules 1.1 Give employees proper training before they use the Internet. This should cover: How to use your Internet software. Your Internet policy, and how it works. Efficient use of the Internet. 1.2 Make sure employees follow your access procedures. Configure software to maximize security. Do not allow employees to change settings or use other software. Depending on the nature of your connection, employees may need to disconnect once they have finished using the Internet.
