Computer Systems Acceptable Usage Policy

 

Purpose

Information technology (“IT”) is a key service on which CIT’s Staff and students depend and more importantly the security of that information. IT Security is now a critical core responsibility of the Institute. A lack of robust IT Security and an associated policy can lead to reputational and other damage and loss to the Institute, its Staff and students as demonstrated by numerous high profile security breaches in other sectors in recent years.

In light of these factors, it is clear that CIT requires a robust IT Security and Acceptable Usage Policy, one that protects the Institute’s reputation and also protects Staff and students of the Institute. In devising this Policy, the management of CIT have utilised the previous Computer Systems Acceptable Usage Policy (February 2008) and made the following changes.
