Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Use MDM (Mobile Device Mangement) to assist with BYOD

Thoughts BYOD

  1. How does BYOD culture affect your culture of compliance?
  2. BYOD does increase your risk.
  3. BYOD will increase your (techs) work load.
  4. Considering… Requiring notification.

Reasons To BYOD

– Save Money

– Increase productivity

– Employee moral

Rules For BYOD

Items that any business currently building a BYOD strategy must consider.

  1. It must clearly be outlined what specific devices are permitted for work use.  Train your employees.
  2. The company/organisation must have the ability to remotely delete company-sensitive data from mobile devices without the device owner’s permission.  The device should be set up FOR them for access to company informaiton.  Access should be limited.
  3. Adotp best practices.  Ignore user whining.
  4. Written policies should be put into effect that correspond with terms of use policies and any guidelines pertaining to remote/home workers or the sharing of sensitive data. 
  5. Employee privacy should be discussed within the BYOD policy since employees often use these devices to check personal data.
