Hi everyone. I have a small firm and I employ around 10 people some of who work out of office hours and others during office hours. I have just installed a Proxy Server to monitor my staff’s internet activity because previously I suspected that they used the Internet for browsing on sites other than for business. They also receive and send out E Mails for personal amusement.
At present they are unaware of this monitoring but I want to gather adequate information on the personal use before I implement the policy. In order that I proceed correctly on this matter so that the use of Internet & the EMail is used for the benefit of my staff’s professional development and the business I wonder if anyone can point me to any written policies that I can use. Maybe a website link or an article or any other guidance will be most appreciated.
