Did you use ChatGPT to write this? :P

If you check out the appendix, you can see what ChatGPT gave me when I DID try to use it to generate a policy to regulate its own use.

I removed it because it was terrible, but here is what GPT-4 generated in terms of an AI policy:


The purpose of this policy is to provide specific guidelines for employees who interact with generative AI tools, such as ChatGPT, to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive information.


This policy applies to all employees who use generative AI tools in the course of their work.


Authorization: Employees must obtain prior authorization from their manager and/or the Information Security team before using generative AI tools.

Data Sensitivity: Employees must take care to avoid exposing sensitive data when using generative AI tools. Sensitive data includes financial information, personally identifiable information (PII), and company trade secrets. Employees must never share or input sensitive data into generative AI tools.

Data Protection: Employees must ensure that output generated by generative AI tools is handled with care. This includes:

a. Avoiding sharing or forwarding output generated by generative AI tools outside of the organization or with unauthorized personnel.

b. Properly disposing of any output generated by the generative AI tool, such as deleting chat logs or other output, in a secure manner.

c. Limiting the scope of the interaction session and only providing the minimum necessary information.

Monitoring: All interactions with generative AI tools must be logged and monitored to ensure compliance with this policy. Monitoring includes the recording of input and output to ensure that no sensitive information is disclosed.

Training: Employees who interact with generative AI tools must be trained on this policy and any related procedures before being granted access to these tools.

Restrictions: The use of generative AI tools is restricted to business-related activities only. Employees may not use generative AI tools for personal or non-business related activities.


Violation of this policy may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment. Any violations must be reported to the appropriate supervisor or the information security team.


This policy is intended to provide specific guidelines to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive information when interacting with generative AI tools. Adherence to this policy is mandatory for all employees who use these tools in the course of their work.
