Originally Published:
Jul 2006

Numerous studies indicate that personal e-mail use at work is a leading cause of lost productivity. In addition, personal e-mail use can introduce viruses and Trojan programs that aid hackers' attempts to illegally obtain sensitive and confidential data.

This policy's purpose is to ensure that every employee, contractor, and temporary worker understands and agrees to abide by specific guidelines for using organization-provided electronic mail. It includes a policy you can customize to meet your needs as well as a risk assessment spreadsheet you can use to judge just how much your organization is at risk by not having this policy in place.
