Passive Monitoring Policy. Today we have also included a Summary Form for you to complete. Advantages Access to websites Access to collaboration software Employee morale Employee privacy Neutral Em pty Disadvantages Application support problems Virus incident volume Help desk support volume Bandwidth usage Company liability Employee productivity Summary Form Please compare and contrast the three types of policies you've experienced based on the potential social, political and ethical issues involved. Does one policy fit all companies or are there some companies where one policy makes more sense than others and why? Does company size matter and why? Does the employee job role matter and why? Zero Tolerance is the most restrictive policy. Active Monitoring is a little less restrictive, and with Passive Monitoring, there are virtually no restrictions. With this organization, zero tolerance proved to be a problem. Internet was access limited, email was strictly monitored, and no unapproved applications were allowed on company computers. Active monitoring only restricted certain websites. This tightly limited bandwidth usage. Streaming media was blocked and computers were occasionally checked for unapproved applications. Passive monitoring only watched the bare minimum. Site visitations get logged, and are reviewed after an incident is suspected to have taken place. Overall, company size does not really matter. What does matter is the type of company and the business that it partakes in. All companies will most likely be confronting the same issues. Different job positions require access to different systems. By setting up a flexible policy that allows access for some and limits others; a company will most likely succeed in regards to network monitoring. Which network policy do you prefer? Active Monitoring How did the social, ethical, and/or political considerations impact your choice? Since [each] of these subjects are closely related, my choice was challenging to determine. It seems that with email monitoring, ethics were brought into play. Do you really want someone snooping through your personal information? With passive monitoring, the political card was played. No restrictions mean poor security. A political or even social company enemy could easily steal information. In the end, active monitoring was the best choice. It provided a nice yinyang effect company wide. Employees may not be 100 percent satisfied, but it is enough to keep them happy and provide appropriate network security. 2009 Toolwire, Inc.
