Smart Policies for Workplace Technology: Email, Blogs, Cell Phones & More by Lisa Guerin

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.

v 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.

Smart Policies for Workplace Technologies provides the tools employers need to assess your current policies' effectiveness, along with information on how to draft or revise, then distribute and enforce your new customized policies.

Co-published with the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), Smart Policies for Workplace Technologies keeps your business safe, online and off.

This information is directed at human resource managers or business managers, for use in developing company policies and writing employee handbooks. But, as I have done some technical writing in my past, I found this book to be a valuable source of information and resource as well. The manual would also be valuable for every business professional, to educate themselves in the law and help themselves understand how to best protect not only their business and profession, but their personal lives. I also believe that anyone who is involved in social networking would find the legal information provided in this book valuable. As pointed out by the author, what someone does in their personal life often intersects with their professional life. This material provides insight into how best to proactively manage both.
