The purpose of the Course Paper is to evince your understanding of the laws and regulations related to privacy issues and challenges found in information technology settings.
In this Course Paper your team must draft three workplace policies about privacy for a client company. You have been hired by that company to help it create three new policies that govern privacy in the workplace. The client needs to comply with the applicable privacy laws and regulations that relate to its business, as well as privacy rules that relate to its employees.
The three privacy policies will govern your client and its employees. The policies shall not be targeting the client company’s customers or website visitors, for example. Rather, they are meant to be used by your client’s employees. Imagine that you are working in your client’s place of business and need to understand how to comply with privacy laws and regulations, or to understand your own privacy rights and restrictions in the workplace.
Draft your Course Paper according to the Main Requirements, above, and by following these simple. additional rules:
I. Select one of these four industries to represent your client’s business: (I) financial institution; (2) education; (3) health care; or (4) government. Tell the reader your client’s business name (of your creation) and the industry sector that best describes your client’s business. Also, add a few sentences about why it is important in that industry to have privacy policies that comply with laws and regulations.
2. Draft three privacy policies. Number your policy statements and carefully and concisely draft each one in a way that is easy to understand by your client’s employees. Generally, the policy statement should be no longer than one or two sentences. Take care to avoid drafting security policies, such as encryption standards, or BYOD limitations; remember, there is a difference between the processes of information security, and privacy, the result of security policies.
3. Next, justify your inclusion of each of the three policy statements in your client’s workplace. Here, under each of the three policy statements, you must write a short paragraph or two to explain to your client why you chose to advise them to include the policy. This area will include your discussion
about the laws and regulations you learned about in this course.
