Acceptable Use of Information and Communication Technology Policy
The Acceptable Use of Information and Communications Technology Policy is an update to and replacement of the Email & Internet Access Policy. This policy applies to all system users of BMCC’s ICT resources (permanent employees, temporary, casual, work experience, volunteers, Councillors, contractors and authorised external agents) and covers all BMCC ICT facilities, devices and services.
Council must ensure that its information and communication technology (ICT) facilities, devices and services are used in a manner which is consistent with Council values, and the principles of accountability, confidentiality and information security.
This policy sets out the constraints and practices that a user must agree to as a condition of access to Council’s corporate network or Council-provided Internet connection. All ICT facilities and services are provided primarily for Council business use and as such must be properly and efficiently used.
They key update to the policy is to widen the scope from Internet and Email to encompass all Information and Communication Technology.
