The Clear Desk and Clear Screen Policy sets out the company requirements for tidiness and security in regards to workstations and laptops that may be used by an employee.
In our digital world, it’s even more important to promote a clean/tidy/safe working environment when it comes to data protection. Computers that are left unlocked can easily result in a breach of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and documents left in view on a desk can fall into the wrong hands, therefore measures should be taken by employers to promote a clean and tidy workstation.
Assure HR’s Data Protection Policy should also be used to encourage employees to be mindful of data security.
