I was wondering if any of you out there have a company policy written regarding wireless devices?
I work for a hospital and I'm in the process of writing up a policy regarding the use and installation of various authorized / unauthorized wireless devices...
Currently, there is no "official" written policy preventing people from bringing in their own AP's and in order for me to take action against this I need to have an official policy written and then approved by management.
Do any of you have one that I could reference so that I can make sure I have all my bases covered?
Any suggestions or samples would be greatly appreciated...
There are a number of guys who are taking care of wireless in a number of hospitals and they should be able to give you a brief run-down.
In my personal opinion, no one, unless sanctioned by the organization, is allowed to bring their own "chop suey" network gear into a production network. I've had a number of experiences where they caused network outages and un-necessary hours of troubleshooting that were caused by equipments that simply wouldn't work in the network because of lack of functionality (for example).
