An end user policy is a set of directives that describes what actions employees must take -- or avoid -- in order to protect corporate assets.  An end user policy can be an informal set of guidelines handed out to employees or hung in a public place or it can be a more formal signed contract, whose violation is terms for dismissal.

Types of end user policies include:

Acceptable use policy (AUP) - a policy that a user must agree to follow in order to be provided with access to a network or to the Internet.

Clean desk policy (CDP) - a corporate directive that specifies how employees should leave their work space when they leave the office.

Consumerization policy - a documented set of practices for managing the use of consumer devices and technologies within a given organization.  

Corporate mobility policy - a set of guidelines that govern the use and security of corporate-owned mobile devices. 

Social networking policy (SNP)  - a corporate code of conduct that provides guidelines for employees who post content on the Internet either as part of their job or as a private person.
