Selected as key part of the organisation’s corporate governance and compliance strategy
Camberley, 29th October 2004: Nexus Technology, leaders in secure IT solutions and services, today announced the implementation of the NETconsent Policy Management solution within Cornwall County Council.
Cornwall County Council has chosen the NETconsent software solution to manage and communicate corporate policies to its 3,500 IT users following a rigorous tendering process which was completed in September. Nexus Technology, which has a 12 year track record in security and risk management, has supplied the software and will be providing technical assistance with the initial roll-out and other support services.
Cornwall County Council has a variety of corporate policies including those relating to the use of the Internet and internal and external eMail, to which all employees are expected to adhere. As part of its on-going governance and compliance strategy, the organisation will in future require all employees to complete an electronic acceptance of these policies, indicating each user’s consent to be bound by them.
“The Council maintains high standards of Corporate Governance” stated Frank Twyning, Cornwall’s County Treasurer, “This software will help us to communicate our policies more effectively to all our employees, which in turn will help us maintain our high standards and the Councils excellent reputation.”
