If your organization doesn’t have a clean desk policy, you are putting your business at high risk.
Having a clean desk policy that is respected and enforced will be an important tool for safeguarding sensitive and confidential information. This policy is not only critical for any business that wants to reduce the risk of security breaches, but it helps bring employee ad customer awareness about protecting information.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve visited prospective clients in their offices and have witnessed checks, sensitive corporate documents, employee and patient records and passwords out in the open.
You’d be surprised how quickly information can disappear from your desk, drawer or filing cabinet when your office is open and unattended. When you also consider technology today, think about how one quick trip to the restroom, coffee machine or copier would make it easy for an unsuspecting thief to get a quick snapshot of an important document.
A great start for planning an information security program begins with policies to protect your company. For a complimentary, no strings attached “Clean Desk Policy” for your business, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Put in the subject line: Free “Clean Desk Policy”.
