Topic/Theme: Employee IT Acceptable Use Policy
Select an employee acceptable use policy for a real or fictional organization that addresses its information systems, technology and assets. If necessary, make changes to the policy to include, but not necessarily be limited to, email, social media and web usage, mobile computing and the permissible uses and corporate administration of personal devices.
You should include a basic description of the mid-size organization as an attachment. This description (less than five sentences) should identify the organization, approximate numbers and types of employees, the role of information technology, and any other descriptive information that relates to "acceptable use."
This policy should reflect your best effort to select and modify a policy specific to the organization you chose. Be sure to identify and cite the sources. You may simply copy/paste sections, parts, or the whole policy from another existing policy or template. As such, there is no originality requirement for the policy section of the paper. Attach the modified policy as appendix in the paper.
The main body of your paper (7-10 pages, double space) should be a detailed discussion of the ethical and legal implications of your policy and the choices made in preparing the policy. The ethical analysis should identify the approach you used, the conflicting interest involved and the rationale for the selection or modifications. The legal discussion should demonstrate how the proposed policy reflects current laws and regulations (security, privacy, intellectual property, copyrights, fair use etc.) that we have discussed in the course. Be sure to properly cite the authoritative sources, including OERs utilized in this course.
In this paper you must demonstrate graduate level writing and comply with the format requirements of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Careful attention should be given to spelling, punctuation, source citations, references, and the presentation of tables and figures. It is expected that all course work will be presented on time and error free.
