Design an AUP – AUP and its key elements.

  1. Write a brief summary of the attached article. In your summary, focus on the need for an AUP and its key elements.
  2. Design an AUP for this  fictional credit union, using the online example of the AUP as a  template. Your policy does not need to be exhaustive, but it should  outline the key components of an AUP and provide policy statements that  address the above requirements. You may want to create your policy using  word processing software on your local computer and then copy and paste  the text into the deliverable field.

Consider the following fictional organization, which needs an acceptable use policy (AUP):

  • The organization is a local credit union with several branches and locations throughout the region.
  • A major focus for the organization is online banking.
  • The organization’s most critical business function is its customer service department.
  • The organization wants to be in compliance  with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and IT security best practices  regarding its employees.
  • The organization wants to monitor and control use of the internet by implementing content filtering.
  • The organization wants to eliminate personal use of organization-owned IT assets and systems.
    The organization wants to monitor and control use of the e-mail system by implementing e-mail security controls.
