Internet User Policy

Course Overview

Use of internet facilities has become an accepted means of how employees carry out their duties in the workplace. However, abuse of a company's internet facilities (example, accessing obscene material, excessive personal use, etc) can be a serious problem for businesses. Indeed there are more concerns at stake for employers than simply time-wasting by employees. Abuse of IT facilities, with regard to sexuality explicit, racist or threatening content, places a company at risk of facing legal claims from offended employees. Failure by businesses to adopt, implement and transmit a clear usage policy can leave businesses exposed to costly legal disputes.

To promote legal compliance, every employee should be provided with information regarding practices that the Company deem to be acceptable and unacceptable. The course is completely customisable to allow organisations to add, delete or amend content as appropriate to their needs.
