For many organizations, it's not enough to provide an acceptable use policy that spells out what kind of latitude employees have when using e-mail or the Internet. Although many businesses have users who are technologically astute enough to know what kinds of downloads and executables are safe to bring into their environment, there are plenty of instances when IT must spell out what is allowed.

This sample policy will provide an initial list of downloadable applications as a guideline that can be maintained by the IT staff. It will let employees know which applications are acceptable, which are not, and what to do if they are unsure.

Use this policy as-is or customize it to meet your needs.
