    I may have to write up an acceptable use policy for our computers and internet/email at work.

    Anybody have any suggestions or examples I could reference? :wavey:

    Dude, don't make me get Okie's brick. :okie: :tease:


    I am looking for something a little more down to earth, not some University or PC policy.

    Maybe even some some advice from those with experience. :wavey:

    Haha, I just used that on a friend today too. It's so true in this case. There's plenty of sample AUPs out there. Just adjust to what you need to avoid - gambling, private business on company time, porn, religion, politics, racist jokes, etc. and include a policy on what'll steps will be taken if there's problems.

    I never heard of a AUP for a business, but a security policy or just policy on use of computer and don't do this, and don't down load that, and blah blah blah.

    if you need a AUP for a business, than 1; your workers have no work imho and need more work or layoffs 2; you should invest into end-point controls 3; put them behind a proxy 4; install websense or 5; a combination of all 4.
