You’ve heard the story before: On a Friday, Apple, Google, Blackberry, or Microsoft announces the availability of a cool new phone or tablet. The following Monday, business employees line up in front of the IT department to get immediate access to corporate resources like e-mail and internal applications on their personal devices.
In many instances, IT simply grants access and the user goes on his or her merry way even though these devices increase overall risk to the organization. This does not need to be the case however. Robert Duvall, President of Robert Duvall Consulting Inc. (“RDC Networks”) has established a Bring Your Own Device (“BYOD”) policy for his customers that help protect them from losing their company’s intellectual property in the event of an employee leaving the company, or something as simple as a lost mobile device. Many companies are now allowing employees to bring their own devices into their businesses without ever thinking where their data goes when an employee leaves. Who has the right to that data when the mobile device isn’t supplied by the employer? Does your company have a corporate policy about intellectual property? Do you need one? With a bit of forethought, your company can secure your data and have a smooth experience.
