The Clear Desk and Clear Screen Policy aims at protecting sensitive information, both in physical and digital formats, as well as assets such as laptops or mobile devices within the organisation, when they are not in use.
A requirement for ISO 27001, the policy sets practices which protect sensitive information from prying eyes and unauthorised use. As a result, you can start reducing cyber risks caused by employee bad habits.
Other benefits of having a Clear Desk and Clear Screen Policy are:
- Improving information and cyber security
- Creating a culture of security in your organisation
- Discouraging the use of paper documents
