Why does your business need a Confidentiality Policy?
This policy is typically given to employees, contractors, third party organisations, or any other party your business engages in order to encourage integrity in the distribution and utilisation of any personal information these parties receive. Providing employees with this policy also lets them know their responsibilities and obligations when handling personal information.
Implementing a Confidentiality Policy assists your business to decrease the risk of information links or unauthorised information distribution which could result in negative outcomes for your business and sets out procedures, guidelines and consequences for staff in circumstances where confidentiality is breached.
Implementing this can also assist in decreasing and can limit the liability of your business should personal or identifying information be leaked by employees or other parties given access to the information.
