The server space usage policy will help to establish standards for appropriate use of server storage space. Server storage space, like any other corporate resource, must be carefully tracked, managed, controlled, and maintained and the server storage space usage policy will help any company to do so. The policy will communicate to employees the need to manage server space and will help any company to preserve the finite amount of storage space available on network servers.
Risks Addressed by Policy:
- Harmful viruses are introduced to the corporate network.
- Server space is exceeded due to the storage of inappropriate files.
- Critical data lost in a system failure.
