ABC Corporation Security Awareness and Acceptable Use Policy
The intentions for publishing a security awareness and acceptable use policy are not to impose restrictions that are contrary to the established culture of openness, trust and integrity. ABC Corporation is committed to protecting all employees, partners and the company from illegal or damaging actions by individuals, either knowingly or unknowingly.
Internet/Intranet/Extranet-related systems, including but not limited to computer equipment, software, operating systems, storage media, network accounts providing electronic mail, WWW browsing, and FTP, are the property of ABC Corporation. These systems are to be used for business purposes in serving the interests of the company, and of our clients and customers in the course of normal operations.
Effective security is a team effort involving the participation and support of every ABC Corporation employee and affiliate who deals with information and/or information systems. It is the responsibility of every computer user to know these guidelines, and to conduct their activities accordingly.
The purpose of this policy is to outline the acceptable use of computer equipment at ABC Corporation. These rules are in place to protect the employees and ABC Corporation. Inappropriate use exposes ABC Corporation to risks including virus attacks, compromise of network systems and services, and legal issues.
This policy applies to employees, contractors, consultants, temporary employees, and all other workers at ABC Corporation, including all personnel affiliated with third parties. This policy applies to all equipment that is owned or leased by ABC Corporation.
General Use and Ownership
While network administration desires to provide a reasonable level of privacy, users should be aware that the data they create on the corporate systems remains the property of ABC Corporation. Because of the need to protect the network, management cannot guarantee the confidentiality of employee’s personal information stored on any network device belonging to ABC Corporation.
Employees are responsible for exercising good judgment regarding the reasonableness of personal use. Individual departments are responsible for creating guidelines concerning personal use of Internet/Intranet/Extranet systems. In the absence of such policies, employees should be guided by departmental policies on personal use, and if there is any uncertainty, employees should consult their
supervisor or manager.
IT recommends that any information that users consider sensitive or vulnerable be encrypted.
For security and network maintenance purposes, authorized individuals within ABC Corporation may monitor equipment, systems and network traffic at any time.
ABC Corporation reserves the right to audit networks and systems on a periodic basis to ensure compliance with this policy.
Security and Proprietary Information
The user interface for information contained on Internet/Intranet/Extranet-related systems should be classified as either confidential or not confidential. Examples of confidential information include but are not limited to: credit card information, company private, corporate strategies, competitor sensitive, trade secrets, specifications, customer lists, and research data. Employees should take all necessary steps to prevent unauthorized access to this information.
Keep passwords secure and do not share accounts. Authorized users are responsible for the security of their passwords and accounts. System and user level passwords should be changed every 90 days.
All PCs, laptops and workstations should be secured with a password-protected screensaver with the automatic activation feature set at 15 minutes or less.
Employees should secure their workstations by logging off or locking (control-alt-delete for Windows users) when the host will be unattended.
Use encryption of information in compliance with Information Technologies' Security Policies.
Because information contained on portable computers is especially vulnerable, special care should be exercised. Protect laptops in accordance with the corporate security standards, including personal firewalls.
Postings by employees from a ABC Corporation email address to newsgroups should contain a disclaimer stating that the opinions expressed are strictly their own and not necessarily those of ABC Corporation, unless posting is in the course of business duties.
All hosts used by the employee that are connected to the ABC Corporation Internet/Intranet/Extranet, whether owned by the employee or ABC Corporation, shall be continually executing approved virus-scanning software with a current virus database.
Employees must use extreme caution when opening e-mail attachments received from unknown senders, which may contain viruses, e-mail bombs, or Trojan horse code.
The following activities are, in general, prohibited. Employees may be exempted from these restrictions during the course of their legitimate job responsibilities (e.g., systems administration staff may have a need to disable the network access of a host if that host is disrupting production services).
Under no circumstances is an employee of ABC Corporation authorized to engage in any activity that is illegal under local, state, federal or international law while utilizing ABC Corporation-owned resources.
