Definition Edit

The clean desktop principle means

that employees should put away sensitive items before leaving their work area. In addition, a clean desk will keep sensitive information out of the hands of personnel who do not have a legitimate reason for accessing this information. Personnel who have no need-to-know include cleaning staff and security guards.[1]
