IT Policies are in place to enable the efficient and effective operation of IT services.
Every company that uses computers, email, the internet, and software on a daily basis should have information technology (IT) policies in place. It is important for employees to know what is expected and required of them when using the technology provided by their employer, and it is critical for a company to protect itself by having policies to govern areas such as personal internet and email usage, security, software and hardware inventory and data retention. It is also important for the business owner to know the potential lost time and productivity at their business because of personal internet usage.
