Cell Phone and PDA Policy
June 7, 2006
Cellular telephones and personal digital assistants (PDAs) such as Blackberry, Smartphone, and Treo devices enable fast communications, remote wireless network connectivity, and more productive mobile employees. However, such devices add significant operating expenses and create additional security concerns for the organization. As such, the organization can maintain and enforce this cell phone and PDA policy to help maximize security while managing costs.
This policy's purpose is to help determe if, how, and when employees may use company-provided cell phones and PDAs. It includes a policy you can customize to meet your needs as well as a risk assessment spreadsheet you can use to judge just how much your organization is at risk by not having this policy in place.
