Managed Porn!

Okay, the title is a bit gratuitous. I have two points, though:

The Mass Data Protection and Personal Information Privacy Regulations have implications in some…interesting places.

If you’ve never been to an adult web site, you may have never heard of US Code Title 18 Chapter 110 Section 2257: Record Keeping Requirements for Sexually Explicit Materials. This bit of law specifies that any producer of such content (pictures, movies, etc) must verify (and keep copies of) legal ID. What’s the most common legal ID?

You got it…a Driver’s License. Which under Mass 201 CMR 17.00 is “personal information” requiring protection.

So…in addition to the challenges of inherent in their own businesses, adult content producers must collect and maintain copies (which must be produced on demand for an unspecified length of time) of drivers’ licenses (which must be handled and stored according to the Office of Consumer Affairs regulations).

Thought 2

Employers of all sizes must take steps to promote productive, non-abusive work environments. Even harassment cases that appear to “end well” can be very costly.

One fairly easy and “painless” way to prevent employee access to Internet pornography is through network-based or computer-based filters. Our vendor partners keep tabs on millions of web sites and quickly comb out sites that are inappropriate, deliver malware and viruses, or falsified bank “phishing” sites.

The end result? You get the level of protection you need, and your staff has the flexibility they want.

We can

  • set different access rules for different employees or computers
  • configure more “open” access during scheduled lunch break or after-hours
  • allow your staff to request un-blocks quickly and easily
  • provide you with reports of your employees’ internet usage
  • alert you to attempts to get around the blocks
  • find infected systems faster by watching their outgoing traffic

We find that simply notifying your staff that their computers are business assets and subject to monitoring shows productivity gains. And when you take control of Facebook, Myspace, Youtube, and employment search sites you can re-gain hours of productive time per week with a minimum of pain.

Our more advanced solutions can help prevent personal or business information from “leaking” via e-mail, file transfer sites, or instant messaging.

Ask us about our different solutions for different situations!

To return to the original point, though…

…yes, we can manage your porn!
