Monitoring

No one may use the Assembly’s IT equipment in contravention of the Acceptable Use Policy or the legislation in force.

The Assembly possesses software for monitoring and recording all operations carried out on its wireless network, and may inspect a user’s computer if it considers that the user has contravened its Acceptable Use Policy. Inspections are carried out at the request of the authorities of the Assembly or the person in charge of information security.
