Wireless Communication Policy


With the mass explosion of Smart Phones and Tablets, pervasive wireless connectivity is almost a given at any organization.  Insecure wireless configuration can provide an easy open door for malicious threat actors.


The purpose of this policy is to secure and protect the information assets owned by your company. Your company provides computer devices, networks, and other electronic information systems to meet missions, goals, and initiatives. Your company grants access to these resources as a privilege and must manage them responsibly to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all information assets.

This policy specifies the conditions that wireless infrastructure devices must satisfy to connect to your company's network. Only those wireless infrastructure devices that meet the standards specified in this policy or are granted an exception by the Suzor IT team are approved for connectivity to your company's network.


All employees, contractors, consultants, temporary and other workers at your company, including all personnel affiliated with third parties that maintain a wireless infrastructure device on behalf of your company, must adhere to this policy. This policy applies to all wireless infrastructure devices that connect to a company network or reside on a company site that provides wireless connectivity to endpoint devices including, but not limited to, laptops, desktops, cellular phones, and tablets. This includes any form of wireless communication device capable of transmitting packet data.

  • Use Suzor IT approved authentication protocols and infrastructure.
  • Use Suzor IT approved encryption protocols.
  • Maintain a hardware address (MAC address) that can be registered and tracked.
  • Not interfere with wireless access deployments maintained by other support organizations.
