Compliance Corner – Software Downloads & Restarting Your Computer



HRHS has a policy that states team members are NOT allowed to download any type of software program onto computers UNLESS you have the permission of Information Systems. This is HRHS Policy IT 1-107 Use of Computer Software.  If a team member is found to have downloaded a program without the permission of IS, the team member may face discipline.

It is important to restart/reboot your computer occasionally in order to allow software upgrades to occur.  This is important especially for software patches that correct/prevent a virus from getting into your computer.

Call the HRHS Compliance Hotline (573) 248-5650 if you have questions or concerns.

Thanks for doing the right thing!
