Internet Use Policy

Our Internet Use Policy provides employees with rules and guidelines concerning the appropriate use of company equipment, network and Internet access.

Having such a policy in place helps to protect both the business and the employee; the employee will be aware that browsing certain sites or downloading files may be prohibited and that the policy must be adhered to. Not following these guidelines could result in disciplinary or legal action. or there could be serious repercussions, thus leading to fewer security risks for the business as a result of employee negligence.

The Internet Usage Policy is an important document that should be signed by all employees upon starting work. We have prepared a basic guideline policy that can be tailored to the requirements of the specific organization.

Your Internet Use Policy may also be posted on your company’s webpage and/or Intranet site where it may be referred to by employees.

What are the risks?

Employees may engage in activities that not only waste time and productivity, but may download illegal software, install file-sharing programs, view or download pornographic materials and install software applications that may harm company security and hardware. Clearly defining these risks and informing employees that they are strictly forbidden protects the organization from most risks – legal and otherwise – which may result.
