Description

Why implement BYOD?

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) promises improved productivity, reduced capital expenditure and better work-life balance for employees. It also promises security and compliance problems for organisations that have inadequate BYOD policies.

A poorly thought out BYOD implementation brings more headaches than benefits. A really good BYOD policy tackles the potential shortfalls – and the many related issues, setting out clearly for staff what is and isn’t allowed and, combined with a comprehensive Acceptable Use Agreement, your BYOD policy will help determine how many of the benefits of BYOD you actually achieve.

ITGP toolkits - BYOD Policy Template Toolkit

This BYOD Policy Template kit contains a complete, customisable BYOD policy and a user Acceptable Use Agreement, together with implementation guidance, capable of use either on its own or within any ITGP Documentation Toolkit.

Use this easy-to-customise BYOD policy template, and its supporting Acceptable Use Agreement (included in this kit), to structure, focus and document your own organisational approach to BYOD, and to get informed sign-up from every employee who wants to benefit from your BYOD option. Fully up-to-date for the March 2013 official guidance on data management and security from the UK’s Information Commissioner, this BYOD policy toolkit puts affordable best practice at the fingertips of CIOs and Security Managers everywhere.

This toolkit is compatible and can be used within an ISO27001: 2013 Information Security Management System (ISMS) and also reflects the requirements of the Business Continuity Management Standard, ISO22301. Purchase and download it today.

Four reasons organisations implement BYOD:

  1. BYOD shifts investment and running costs to the employee – usually, the employee purchases their own preferred device and pays most of the running costs
  2. BYOD boosts employee satisfaction – employees use the device of their own choice for working, rather than whatever the organisation provides, and most people greatly prefer this option
  3. BYOD can speed up use within the organisation of cutting edge technology – because employees are into their devices, they upgrade more often and more aggressively, personally taking the investment risk of using the latest device
  4. BYOD eliminates end-of-life device administration – the employee disposes of their own device when they’re finished with it, relieving organisations of the cost and compliance hassle associated with disposing of outmoded mobile devices.

Alongside those interesting benefits come a number of significant risks:

  1. Employee devices will have to connect to the corporate network, which raises the spectre of unauthorised access to corporate information, malicious activity, malware infestations and so on
  2. Employee devices will be used for processing data that is protected by regulations such as the Data Protection Act, EU Data Protection Directive, PCI DSS, HIPAA, GLBA and etc – and the employer remains accountable for the safe processing of that data
  3. Employee devices may store corporate information and protected personal information - if an employee loses the device or leaves the company, the employer will have to recover the data
  4. Employee devices will be equipped with applications (including games and apps) that might not be available on corporate devices, which means the organisation’s rules about what is and isn’t allowed will be breached from the outset.
