The Clean Desk Procedure was developed by the Company in order to protect classified information, company’s goods and employees’ personal goods, as well as to reduce the risk of fire, incidental floods or any other damaging events.
The procedure expects all employees to maintain as little information as possible on their desks and to clean their desks before leaving at night and locking away any proprietary information and/or documents and/or any valued object that would be easily taken.
This procedure has a positive side effect in that desks and work areas will be more neatly maintained. Another positive side effect is that materials that are left out are more likely to be damaged or destroyed in a fire, explosion, or other disaster.
This procedure covers all desk and working area owned by the Company. Outside of regular working hours, all employees must clean their desks and working areas such that all sensitive or valuable data is properly secured.
