It has become evident that some of our members do not understand or appreciate the importance of the Canada Post Information Security and Policy Practices pertaining to corporate assets (i.e. computers, laptops, phones, etc.) and personal use in the workplace.
The Association is very concerned that some members could and have faced serious consequences for deemed misuse and inappropriate access to sites on their work computers, etc., therefore; we believe it is imperative that you consider the following:
Be aware and familiar with the Information Security and Policy Practices. (refer to Intrapost, Resources, Policy)
Do NOT share your passwords with anyone, at any time.
Do NOT let anyone use your computer when you are logged in.
When you are away from your computer, always LOG OFF.
Do NOT access, transmit, store or receive any text, audio, video, or image materials that are discriminatory, abusive, profane, threatening, harassing, offensive, inappropriate or inconsistent with CPC policies or practices.
Report any spam, virus, or inappropriate material sent to your computer, laptop, phone, etc. immediately.
Information that is protected or confidential must be protected and not sent outside the CPC network.
Refrain from instant messaging, it is disallowed.
You are the trustee of your passwords, computers, etc. Protect them to protect yourself.
To protect yourself, APOC recommends that you use corporate assets for Canada Post business only; and perform any personal internet, or email business or personal social media on your own personal equipment, away from the office.
Do not put yourself at risk, know the policies and act accordingly. Dont put your employment in jeopardy!
Non-compliance of the CPC Information Security and Policy Practices is considered very serious, and could/has lead to dismissal from Canada Post Corporation.
