Proper Workstation Use

Personal pictures, social networking, online banking are all services that you should not do, or be logged in to on your work computer. Work computers are for work, visiting work-related websites, researching, emailing, generating Powerpoint slideshows, and other work-related actions. Much like posts to social networking sites, everything you say or do can be used against you.

Acceptable Use Policy

Most organizations have a ‘workstation acceptable use policy’ that explains the proper use of your work computer. If your organization has this type of policy, make sure you take the time to read it. All of the things you do on your work computer such as, visiting websites, how much time is spent on Facebook, playing solitaire, using instant messenger chat, can be monitored and logged. Think about what you’re doing, anything you post on the internet is there forever.

Be Safe Online

When it comes to visiting websites or opening personal emails, those actions can affect your work computer and other work computers in your organization. If you happen to visit a site that has malware, you may now have exposed the rest of the company to a malware infection. Try to be aware that you are using a computer that is not yours, the things you do on that computer are not private and could have an impact on your entire company.
