Janco Associates has just released it fourteenth policy in its CIO IT Infrastructure Policy Bundle. This is part of Janco’s continuing effort to create a set of standard procedures that CIOs can implement to meet the challenges they face as they adjust to the new ways that companies are using technology.
The CEO of Janco, Victor Janulaitis said, “As the use of personal mobile devices expands, IT executive are faced with the dilemma that either they support the use of personal mobile devices and maintain some control or the devices will be used and their companies will be a risk for data breaches and non-compliance with mandate requirements.” He added, “Blocking the access to the wealth of resources available to personal devices inhibits productivity and competiveness. At the same time allowing access without a set of rules puts the enterprise and its resources at risk.”
The BYOD policy address the issues associated with sensitive data on personal devices, how they are backup, secured, and destroyed when need. In the addition the policy addresses what to do when an employee leaves, either voluntarily or involuntarily.
