    Clear Desk Policy Template Benefits

    Includes Remote Working

    You are really looking to cover risks of unauthorised access, loss of and damage to information during and outside normal working hours.

    We want to ensure that confidential information isn’t left out on desks and that screens are clear and locked when not in use.

    It does also cover staff that are remote working. A lot of it is common sense but it is important to have a clear policy and a clear policy statement on the companies position.

    It is less concerned with cleaning of desks, as can be implied, although a tidy workspace can help with a tidy mind.

    How would you implement a clear desk policy in a remote company?

    Answer: A clear desk policy applies to both traditional business with offices as well as fully remote businesses. The practical implementation is to encourage digital information and discourage printing or hard copy information. Where it is required we would ensure those employees have access to a cross cut shredder and are aware of the policy and its guidelines. Providing those staff with lockable storage would be encouraged. This is about risk mitigation and management not necessarily risk elimination.

    What format is the policy in?

    Answer: The policy is in Microsoft Word format

    Can I download an example / sample of the clear desk policy to see what I am getting?

    Answer: Yes, you can download a sample of the documents by selecting download sample in the menu.

    How secure are your payments?
