Take the First Step in Securing Your Computers
Computer security begins with employee education, and these 11 FREE IT policies will help you get started.
Protect Your Company
Without the proper policies in place, your company is vulnerable. Your employees are likely sharing information they shouldn’t and doing things on your office computers that they shouldn’t. By putting in place these policies, your employees will know their responsibilities, and you’ll have a clear course of action if one of them violates a policy.
Know What You Need To Do
These policies are written clearly so that you can understand what you need to do to properly protect your computer systems and network. You get our best practices for protecting your confidential information, so all you have to do is implement it.
Educate Your Staff
These policies are the beginning of training your staff in how to avoid getting viruses or falling victim to phishing scams. Computer security starts with educating your employees on what they should and should not do, and why.
