Safe Internet Browsing - IT Support Houston

by Yehuda Cagen 18. October 2010 08:45


In a previous post on computer security, we mentioned that you don’t have to be a techno-geek to help secure your data.

While we recommend having a certified IT consultant or computer services company ensuring the security of your IT systems, here are a few steps for safe Internet-browsing.  

Steps for Safe Internet-browsing

  • Adopt a visible filtering policy (one that is announced to the entire staff and is visible through the computer, so that each employee is constantly reminded they are being monitored.)
  • At the same time, designate a reasonable amount of time for personal Internet use (either give a total amount, maybe 30-45 minutes per day, or at certain times of day)
  • Assure staff that the filtering is in place to ensure a safe/non-hostile working environment by blocking NFSW material.
  • Also consider additions to your policy that will conserve company bandwidth, such as disallowing the use of media players or video sites during peak times.
  • Protect your system against viruses and company against liability by blocking sites like piratebay.com and programs like P2P networks.

These Internet safety tips were provided by guest-blogger Stanley Holditch of InternetSafety.com
