Download free ISO 27001/ISO17799 Clean Desk and Clear Screen Policy Template. This Security Policy template used to reduce the risks of unauthorized access to, or loss of, or damage to, information. This requirement should be contained in the user access authorization document.

The first step is to ensure that appropriate facilities are available in the office in which, depending on their security classification, computer media (disks, tapes, CDs) and paper and paper files can be stored and locked away, including in lockable pedestals, filing cabinets and cupboards.

Sensitive information should be locked away in a fireproof safe (and the security adviser will have to assess the fire resistance of the safe in terms of the sensitivity of the information inside it and its location in order to ensure its survival for long enough to be rescued).

Personal computers, computer terminals and printers should be switched off when not in use and should be protected by locks, passwords and the like

Everyone should be required to use a password protected screen saver that automatically fires up after only a few minutes (between three and five is reasonable) of inactivity

Incoming and outgoing mail collection points should be protected or supervised so that letters cannot be stolen or lost, and faxes and telexes should be protected when not in use.

Photocopiers should be switched off and locked outside working hours; this makes it difficult for unauthorized copying of sensitive information to occur.

All printers and fax machines should be cleared of papers as soon as they are printed; this helps ensure that sensitive documents are not left in printer trays for the wrong person to pick up.
