Often overlooked, detailed policies on the use of computers within an organization are an ever increasing necessity.

Paramount is loss of productivity; workers can easily spend countless hours online daily entertaining and amusing themselves at their employer’s expense. A hostile work place environment can be created through pornography, potentially exposing the organization to civil liability.

Not just a collection of policies- Thorough explanations of why you need each part of each policy 

While protecting your organization from outside threats is clearly important, protecting the organization from internal threats is at least as important, if not more so. According to a Computer Crime and Security Survey conducted by the Computer Security Institute and the FBI, 55% of the respondents reported unauthorized access to information by persons inside the organization, compared to just 30% who reported intrusions by outsiders. A quarter reported theft of proprietary information and 69% reported theft of laptop computers. Ninety percent (90%) reported virus contamination and a staggering 97% reported systems abuse by insiders (pornography, pirated software, inappropriate email usage, etc.). According to Sextracker, an organization that tracks the online pornography trade, seventy percent (70%) of online pornography viewing occurs during the 9-5 workday.

In use by countless organizations (banks, insurance companies, law firms, local governments, retailers, technology firms, educational institutions, charitable organizations, manufacturers, distributors, etc.)

Our manual has been updated to address all manner of computer related policy needs. The content is based on years of experience in employment related investigations, computer crime investigations, civil litigation, and criminal prosecutions. (RTSI specializes in employment related high tech investigations, including computer forensics.) 

Approximately half of the manual is detailed discussions on each of the 11 policy topic areas; the other half is sample policies that can be readily customized for your organization. The discussions include topics such as why policies are needed, potential liability, employee productivity considerations, and civil litigation. Safeguarding critical and confidential information is discussed in detail. The policies directly address the problems that we typically find in organizations of all sizes.

All of the sample policies are contained in a Rich Text Format (RTF) file allowing virtually any word processor to cut and paste the sample policies from it for editing. This comprehensive guide covers all aspects of computer, Internet, and information policies and the rationale for the sample policies is thoroughly explained to aid in policy formulation.

The Table of Contents, the General Information section, and the Response Guide section of the manual are available online to assist you in evaluating it. Additionally, theLicense Agreement and a brief profile of the Author are also available.
