Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) offers employees and corporations countless business benefits from increasing efficiency to controlling costs to provisioning a mobile workforce. BYOD is driving change in workplace processes and policies, however it is also opening the door for cyber threats as well as legal challenges. Management and CIO’s must address various BYOD nuances to successfully deploy in their organization.
Issues can be avoided by establishing a well-defined BYOD policy to clearly define the appropriate devices and models for use in the workplace, the security requirements and an exit strategy for what happens to the data if the employee leaves the company. Employees need to understand the requirements and their role in keeping the devices and data secure from both internal and external unauthorized individuals.
