The first line of defense in data security is the informed behavior of personnel, who play a significant role in ensuring the security of all data, regardless of format. Such behaviors include those listed in this section as well as any additional requirements specified in the employee handbook, specific security processes, and other applicable codes of conduct.
All employees and contractors must attend the WeGroup security training program, offered at least twice annually, to inform all users of the requirements of this Policy.
It is the responsibility of all personnel to take positive action to maintain physical security. Challenge any unrecognized person present in a restricted office location. Any challenged person who does not respond appropriately should be immediately reported to supervisory staff and the security team. All visitors to WeGroup offices must be registered as such or accompanied by a WeGroup employee.
Personnel should maintain workspaces clear of sensitive or confidential material and take care to clear workspaces of such material at the end of each workday.
Unattended devices must be locked. All devices will have an automatic screen lock function set to automatically activate upon no more than fifteen minutes of inactivity.
Systems are to be used for business purposes in serving the interests of the company, and of our clients and partners in the course of normal business operations. Personnel are responsible for exercising good judgment regarding the reasonableness of personal use of systems. Only WeGroup-managed hardware and software is permitted to be connected to or installed on corporate equipment or networks and used to access WeGroup data. WeGroup-managed hardware and software includes those either owned by WeGroup or owned by WeGroup personnel but enrolled in a WeGroup device management system. Only software that has been approved for corporate use by WeGroup may be installed on corporate equipment. All personnel must read and understand the list of prohibited activities outlined in this Policy. Modifications or configuration changes are not permitted without explicit written consent by the WeGroup security team.
Use of removable media such as USB drives is prohibited. Personnel may not configure work devices to make backups or copies of data outside corporate policies. Instead, personnel are expected to operate primarily “in the cloud” and treat local storage on computing devices as ephemeral. WeGroup data must be saved to company-approved secure cloud storage (e.g. Google Docs) to ensure that even in the event of a corporate device being lost, stolen, or damaged, such artifacts will be immediately recoverable on a replacement device.
The following activities are prohibited. Under certain conditions and with the explicit written consent of the security team, personnel may be exempted from certain of these restrictions during the course of their legitimate job responsibilities (e.g. planned penetration testing, systems administration staff may have a need to disable the network access of a host if that host is disrupting production services).
The list below is by no means exhaustive, but attempts to provide a framework for activities which fall into the category of unacceptable use.
