Q. Do you have an IT Policy for your organisation?

Hello all,

My name is Danny and I am currently the temporary IT Officer for Volunteer Ireland.  Before I finish up I would like to produce a definitive IT Policy document for my colleagues.  Does anyone have one of these I can use as a template?  I just want section headings because I don't want to just copy and paste it.

Hi Danny,

Have you talked to Enclude in drumcondra as they provide technology solutions specific to nonprofits and I am sure they could help you with IT Policy stuff as well. Our IT officer is on holidays at the moment so I am sure he could have helped you with more detail but I would recommend calling enclude on 01 653 5099.

Takle care,


P.S. Enclude have not paid me any royalty to post this message but I really think they should. Hint, hint!

I hope that helps!

In regards to the server advice, our resident IT guru, Anthony Lindsay is going to be out for most of the next two weeks (hence our directing you towards Enclude).
