The technicians implementing any Internet Access or Content Filtering software or even trying to present a proof-of-concept to an organization will achieve “precious little”, without a CIAP. The uniqueness of each enterprise, make a universal CIAP quite ineffective. The CIAP should be as holistic and comprehensive as possible and specifically designed for each enterprise.

Purpose

A corporate CIAP essentially strives to map the purpose of every user, computer or application that requires access to the Internet.

Such maps minutely profile

  • The purpose for which employees or the other infrastructure applications like emails, automatic software updates will be allowed Internet Access.
  • The amount of Internet connectivity resources that will be used for each of such purposes; the time-schedules during which Internet Use will be permitted for them, is also profiled. This helps the management to judge, the benefits to the organization.

A corporate CIAP also must be micro-documented. This is very important, since the management should be aware of what policies have been set, their need, effective results It is also a guideline to future modulations, roll-backs of any portion of the policy. The documentation must start before the implementation of any such policies, and must be appended as the implementation proceeds, and considered an on-going process.
