Acceptable Use Policy templates
Published Date : 02 Aug 2004   Last Updated : 17 Feb 2014   Content Ref: DWN200100  


These Acceptable Use Policy templates are designed to provide a starting point for you to create a policy. All users including staff should be subject to a policy defining how they should use the ICT equipment. 

We have created example templates, easily adaptable to different establishment types, on which you can base your own Acceptable Use Policies.
