Setting Expectations

For the purpose of this course, we will discuss IQ Server’s set of reference policies, which are those ‘out-of-box’ policies.  While these out-of-box policies are very good and many of our customers use as-is, other organizations create their own policies.  Your organization may have policies other than those in this course. Consult your legal team.

Refer to our Glossary for more information on any of the terms used throughout this course.
