In regulated industries, IT policies can make or break organizations. Companies that successfully manage their policies will better mitigate risks and position themselves for success. Those that don’t will risk lawsuits, fines and loss of reputation.
Without policy, companies have no standards to follow. What information is okay to share publicly? What websites and apps are employees allowed to access? IT policy sets expectations for employee behavior.
Let’s say a company’s IT policy is unclear. What if two employees commit the same offense, but only one gets terminated because the other generates more revenue? What if the terminated employee proves this in a lawsuit against the company? A clearly communicated policy helps enforce impartiality and equality across the organization.
