responsibilities and duties or business needs that
require them to have access to this information.

<Company> Confidential: Internal Only

This classification is for information that is
confidential to <Company>. In addition, the sensitivity

must have access to the internal network, an employee
badge, a company email account, or all of these company-

with outside third parties, including vendors who have
signed a CDA, are bound by a contractual agreement that
specifically addresses information ownership by the
company, and confidentiality requirements, or both.
Third parties are not part of the internal corporate
