“Keep your workplace safe — create a sensible technology policy with this all-in-one-guide.

Sixty-eight percent of employees in the U.S. have sent emails that exposed their company to risk, and more than 229 million records have been taken from stolen business laptops or hacked business websites since 2005. It is no wonder, then, that technology dangers consistently rank number one on the list of employers’ concerns.

Every new device that promises to make our lives easier brings with it the risk of misuse — whether accidental or intentional. That’s why it’s so important that any business that employs both people and computers create a safe and sensible policy for technologies in the workplace.
