As workers move to improve their own personal productivity they can and do place corporate sensitive and confidential data at risk

Park City, UT - With the release of iOS5 for the iPhone and iPad Janco has updated its Mobile device access and use policy template to meet these new added requirements. The CEO of Janco Associates, Victor Janulaitis said, "With more business employees moving towards tablet computer, and the iPad in particular, CIOs are now faced with the added support and security requirements posed by these devices. " He also said, "With the increased use of e-mail, SmartPhones, and tablets more records are generated and stored away from a single source and need to be secured and managed. "

Janulaitis said, "A growing number of enterprise employees using iPads and tablet devices - ranging from ad hoc work from home due to temporary family situations to full-time telework/home work arrangements. In fact, a recent survey found that 23% of the North American and European enterprises (companies with 1,000 or more employees) responded that a significant portion of employees spend 20% or more of their working time working away from the office. "

As workers move to improve their own personal productivity they can and do place corporate sensitive and confidential data at risk. The CEO added, "To add to this confusion, cloud storage via solution like iCloud are now repositories for sensitive corporate and customer data. Rules need to be put in place so that everyone is protected. " The policy template provides a framework that any organization can follow with specific rules of what acceptable access and use is. In addition the template provides specific requirements of what and where data can be stored so that it can be recovered in the event of a disaster.

Janulaitis said, "Companies need to have a written policy devoted to mobile device usage. " The Janco template contains: a definition of the purpose of the policy; who is affected by this policy; what type of records, data and electronic systems are covered; defines key terms especially legal and technical terminology; outlines the procedures for ensuring records are properly retained; outlines the procedures for ensuring records are properly destroyed; defines the litigation exception processes and how to respond to discovery requests; lists the responsibilities of those involved in record retention activities; forms that help companies build customized tables showing the information type and its corresponding retention period; document the specific duties of a record retention team; and a job description for a Manager of Record Administration.
