Wireless technology has created a whole new category of security and administration concerns for IT. This sample policy will help you detail to users what devices are allowed to connect wirelessly to your network and how those endpoints must be secured to protect your data and business.
Wireless technologies have been a boon to worker mobility and productivity, but those gains have come with security and mobility headaches for IT. From the earliest days of Wi-Fi, users have attached unauthorized routers and devices to company networks, creating huge gaps in security schemes and exposing valuable data to intruders.
This customizable policy template from our partners at Toolkit Cafe will help you spell out to your users what are acceptable uses and additions of wireless technology to your network. This policy would probably be described as strict — it suggests that users cannot connect to the wireless network with their personal gear — but you can tailor it to fit your businesses’ specific needs.
