The importance of a clean desk policy - Embassy RMS

November 5, 2019

 

What is a clean desk policy?

 

Clean desk policies ensure employee’s work spaces remain organized, professional, and secure. Under this type of policy, employees are required to keep their desks free of any stray information including means post-its, paperwork, and portable media.

 

Clean Desk Policies and Security

 

Clean desk policies increase workplace security, as employees deal with sensitive, private information on a daily basis (whether it is customer information, employee information, partner or vendor information, or internal business related information). When they are required to collect their files and either safely store them or get rid of them, the risk of an information breach decreases dramatically.

If you implement a clean-desk policy, be sure to place secure shred bins next to the recycle bins throughout your office to prevent employees from tossing out files that contain sensitive information in an effort to get materials off their desks.
