Revise the printed email policy

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

IT security policy requires every employee to print and file a paper copy of every work-related email. Requiring on and off-site electronic back-ups of email files provides better security for the records and would save the government millions of dollars per year, as well as hugely reducing paper waste from government offices. The current policy is expensive, out-dated and as non-green as possible.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
