A clean desk policy can be an important tool to ensure that all sensitive/confidential materials are removed from an end-user workspace and locked away when the items are not in use or an employee leaves his/her workstation.
PLAN first thing in the morning.
Keep just the things you need for your workday on your desk. Start each day with a few minutes of planning so that you can organize the documents you need for immediate work. File all other folders and documents.
PROTECT information whenever you leave your desk.
You obviously have to leave your desk to attend meetings or to take breaks. But whenever you do, make a quick check to see if there is sensitive information on your desk and place it inside a folder or off your desktop. And for additional security, make sure to switch on your computer’s password-protected screen saver.
PICK UP at the end of the day.
When you leave your desk in the evening, don’t leave documents on it. In order to maintain the security of both your client and employee information, it’s essential to file your documents or lock them up, if necessary. If you get into the habit of cleaning off your desktop every day before you leave, you’ll enjoy the added productivity benefits that come with a clean office first thing in the morning.
