Remote Consultants - Digital Agreement Form Template?



  • We are about to allow a consultant VPN assess and use a remote desktop on a PC I've set up for him. I'd like to provide some added security to this setup by having them sign a form for access to our network and with standard non-disclosure and network policies and the like. Anyone have a link to a good template for such a form? Thanks...



  • If you want better security, never have a consultant on a VPN! That's way too much exposure. Why are you giving them remote access to the network?



  • It is one of these "Friday Afternoon Cramming/I Need This Know" thing of thing I am faced with...and we have had no policy because we never needed a policy for this. And only have 3 hours and 1000 other projects to do today. 😞

    Most of the time we just do a webex to get them on a server.



  • I've not seen any, I'm sure that they are around. It's fairly common doc to have.



  • I did find a few on Google from some school districts. And this is a single user and close friend to our lead engineer. He will be engineering buildings for us an while, along with our in office engineers.

    Might be OK just this once but making a "policy" just makes sense now.

    We were going to just share files via DropBox or the like but the push suddenly came to get him VPN access like NOW. 😞

    Odd I though you meant a software/IT consultant. You should have HR handle that and have them sign the same AUP as any normal employee. However we don't give these type people network access, they aren't employees. We have an FTP server external engineers share AutoCad, Tekla, and other BIM models over all the time.
