Internet, Email and Social Media - CPD Approved

Price is per online user of this course. Applicable VAT will be added.

The internet is ubiquitous. Over the past decade or so, it has become one of the most accepted and effective ways to access information, to purchase goods and services and to communicate with others. It has facilitated the global expansion of companies, bringing employees – and customers – closer to home. But, as we all know, the internet also has a darker side. Not only can employees use it for non-work purposes during work time, impacting productivity, abusing access to the internet can also bring reputational damage to an organisation and, in extreme cases, may lead to litigation or even criminal investigation.

A clear policy on internet use in the workplace is, therefore necessary for any organisation that conducts their activities online.
