Is Web Content Filtering Important?
The simple answer is 'Yes'. There are both legal and financial reasons!

'Businesses cannot afford to ignore the financial & legal consequences of e-mail and web abuse by employees'
Inside Security, November 2001

Law and legal precedents, for example, the Data Protection Act, require companies to ensure their employees behave in a responsible and legal manner.

Companies have contracts of employment covering all aspects of the relationship between the company and its employees. Company policy on a wide range of issues is clearly outlined. There may be a 'weak' clause in the employee's contract but it is ofter difficult to enforce.

Most employees don't realise they're guilty of abuse, because most businesses don't have a policy that tells them clearly what they can and can't do.

With the increasing use of the internet and internet related technologies does your company have a clearly stated policy relating to the way employees use and make use of the internet with clearly stated and acceptable rules. It is increasingly important that these issues be considered.

"It's a matter of making known what is and what isn't allowable. If in doubt, the best policy is not to let them do it at all."
