News : 76% of businesses feel at risk from 'Bring Your Own Device'

76% of businesses feel at risk from 'Bring Your Own Device'

BYOD has been defined as the use of employee-owned mobile devices, such as; smartphones and tablets to access business enterprise content or networks.

Employers are extremely concerned about allowing employees to use their own devices to access company information, as it forces businesses to wrestle with three key operational challenges:

  • Governance & Compliance ­ BYOD could cause you to violate data protection, regulations, trust, intellectual property and other critical business obligations.
  • Mobile Device Management ­ You need to manage growing workforce expectations around mobility. Your employees use many devices and they expect to use any device or application anytime, anywhere.
  • Security ­ If left unmanaged, BYOD can lead to loss of control, impact your network availability, and cause data loss. You need the right network access strategies and policies in place to secure your environment
However, many of these issues can be eliminated with a clear BYOD policy, so that employees connecting their devices to the company IT systems clearly understand their responsibilities.
An effective BYOD strategy can lead to a number of benefits, including:
  • Improved employee job satisfaction
  • Increased job efficiency and flexibility
  • Cost savings as employees invest in their own devices.

Employers should consider the use of ‘ring-fencing’ data by keeping data contained within a specific app, as well as ensuring that, if the device is lost, the data on it is kept confidential and retained via a backup facility.
