This security policy provides guidance on the use by employees of a company's computer systems and other property.
It details prohibited employee acts, such as:
- using the company IT system to download software;
- logging into the network using the ID or password of another employee;
- using company property to harass or discriminate; and
- copying confidential information belonging to the company.
This policy builds on the standard disciplinary procedure. It is particularly important for any business that runs a network, or holds customer information of other sensitive information electronically.
By providing detailed guidance to employees on how they should and should not behave, the company's position should be enhanced if disciplinary action is taken against an employee in relation to the use of company property.
