Mobility Step 1: BYOD Policy

Long before a company allows business documents to be accessed on devices owned by employees (Bring Your Own Device, BYOD), a strong and clear corporate acceptable use policy needs to be developed.  The policy should include how the employee’s device may be used on business time and what applications are acceptable.  The employee must agree to whatever software the company uses to distribute, secure and manage corporate documents.   The policy must include an acknowledgement from the employee that the company has the right to wipe the data from the device and that the company cannot be held liable for the possible destruction of any of the employee’s data.

Mobile Security in three parts

The wide-spread use of SmartPhones, Tablets and Laptops have put a company’s data out into the “wild” like never before. Securing corporate data, some of which may be protected by regulations like HIPAA and PCI, constitutes a major problem for businesses. The three basic parts of protecting this important corporate asset includes device level security, data protection and employee agreements. I will be conducting a seminar on the topic on March 19, 2013 that is hosted by the Monmouth Ocean Development Council (MODC). Click on this link to register for the event.
