Challenges of the Internet for the Workplace
While the Internet has created significant advantages for all types and sizes of businesses it is important to consider the appropriate way to regulate Internet access in the workplace. This is generally done through the use of company Internet and e-mail policies that identify acceptable uses, and prohibited misuses, of the company’s communications tools. Many firms adopt a comprehensive policy covering all aspects of the business-related uses of the Internet as well as the company’s in-house computers and networks. The attached report discusses some of the issues that management must consider and include a sample of a basic Internet access and use policy.
