Internet usage is both a necessary tool and a potential distraction and security risk. With capabilities of the Internet and users advancing daily, it is important for organizations to construct a policy around usage during working hours and on company resources. Include in the policy:
- Descriptions of acceptable and unacceptable use.
- Security provisions.
- Recourse for non-compliance.
- Disclaimers on the right of the organization to monitor usage and liability.
All enterprises should guide the productive use of Internet services through Internet Acceptable Use Policies. Use this template to help keep the policy up-to-date.
