  • E-business policy statements are high-level statements about the aims and intention of particular aspects of e-business.
    • An e-business policy might be a brief document that makes statements about your organisation’s general approach and aims.
  • Policies then need guidelines and procedures that direct individual staff in their day-to-day use of the Internet. These might be in the form of step-by-step procedures or statements about what can be done online and what is discouraged or even not allowed.
