Code of Conduct

A code of conduct is a voluntary set of rules which people agree to follow or abide by.

Codes of Conduct are not legally binding but once someone agrees to abide by it, then it is considered binding.

Codes of Conduct related to ICT might cover things such as usage of the Internet, for example, the internet should not be used during work time to shop online or book holidays. It would probably cover downloading and viewing pornographic material at work or gambling online during work time.

Other things that are often covered by Codes of Conduct are the security and use of user names and passwords, for example, not leaving your workstation logged on if you are not present or not telling anyone else your password.
