Policies, when referring to computer systems, are rules that define what kinds of
actions can be performed by whom. They also include the ability to make a computer
behave in a certain way for a user or groups of users. For example, policies can
limit who can use a particular workstation, or when they can use it. They can also
deny access to system resources including the control panel and system properties.
Policies can be very powerful when used properly. Using policies, one user can be
limited to the ability to log in, use one or two programs and log back out again,
while others are able to use all of the features of the system.
CSC has experience helping a wide range of companies develop policies around their
needs. We have developed policy systems for schools where students need only limited
access to the network but teachers and other faculty need greater access. We have
also helped companies limit sales people and production staff from accessing portions
of a system. Whatever your needs, we can help you design and implement a robust set
of policies that will limit only those who need to be limited.

to discuss policy development, give us a call.
