Software Installation Policy
Installation of unauthorized computer programs and software, including files downloaded and accessed on the internet, can easily and quickly introduce unnecessary clutter, system instability or unreliability, and serious security vulnerabilities, all of which might require lengthy support remediation and lead to wasted productivity.
This policy from TechRepublic Premium can be used to establish guidelines for software installation on company-owned systems and systems utilized by employees to conduct company operations.
From the policy:
Software installed by the company is to be used only for creating, editing and processing company-related materials. By using the company’s software, employees assume personal responsibility for the appropriate usage thereof and agree to comply with this policy and other applicable company policies, as well as city, state and federal laws and regulations.
The download comprises a seven-page PDF and Word document.
