Tips For Writing A Criminal-Activity Policy

Here are some things to consider when drafting your criminal-activity policy:

  • Create a team of legal, human-resource, and public-relations experts.
  • Evaluate technologies that block the downloading of images to your system.
  • Make sure your existing Internet-use policy is up to date.
  • If you don't have an Internet-use policy, get one!
  • Make sure everyone knows where to report any criminal activity.
  • Line up cybercrime and security consultants in advance.
  • Create a relationship with local law-enforcement agencies.
  • Create a crisis team to handle serious events that impact the company's reputation.
  • Remind employees about the policy regularly.
  • Maintain all logs from the suspected employee's computer.
  • Make sure your IT department knows about your policies and what to do and what not to do if child pornography is suspected.
  • Enforce your policies and procedures. If they aren't working, change them, don't ignore them.
  • If you find child pornography on your system, do a sweep of your backup systems as well.
