Computer Equipment Security And Clear Desk Policy

Computer Equipment Security & Clear Desk Policy - Employee (Step 6 Office UK)

  • Computer accounts and associated passwords are unique to each other and must not be made available to another person. For the avoidance of doubt, upon the termination of your employment (for any reason) you are required to provide details of your password(s) to the company.

    For security reasons computers should be locked when you leave your desk and your computer fully shut down when leaving the office for the day.

    We operate a Clear Desk Policy outside of the business hours. During business hours we acknowledge the need for files and documents but wherever possible they should be maintained in a professional, efficient and orderly manner.

    The main reasons we have introduced this policy are;

    • It shows the right image when our clients visit the company;
    • It reduces the threat of security as passwords and confidential information are locked away;
    • It is generally accepted that a tidy desk is a sign of efficiency and effectiveness.

    At the end of the working day employees are expected to tidy their desk and to tidy away all office papers. We provide either an under desk locker or filing cabinets for this purpose.

    Failure to comply with this policy may result in disciplinary action being taken.
