The rise in popularity of personal smart devices is making it’s mark on the workplace of today. Users want an environment that is flexible and easy to access from any location and is no longer confined by either physical or perceived boundaries. For most users, ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) is simply about allowing them to use their own devices to connect to the corporate network, but the challenge for the organisation and the IT department is, as always, a little more complex.
BYOD significantly impacts the traditional security model of protecting the perimeter of the IT organization by blurring the definition of that perimeter, both in terms of physical location and in asset ownership. With personal devices now being used to access corporate email, calendars, applications and data; many organizations are struggling with how to fully define the impact to their security posture and establish acceptable procedures and support models that balance both their employees’ needs and their security concerns.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) has emerged as a cost-effective solution allowing organisations to adopt a mobile learning approach without having to provide the devices. Here are two potential opportunities associated with delivering learning via employees’ personal devices:
Consumer devices are more advanced
Organisations can focus budgets on content instead of the delivery method
However, there are several security issues to be considered before adopting BOYD.
This highly practical and informative course will explain the main risks of BYOD when considering your mobile device program, and will propose potential steps to address these risks based on your organization’s current and most urgent challenges. Real life case studies will be discussed throughout the duration of this course.
It is only a matter of time before BYOD becomes a widely embraced workplace initiative. Employees already use their personal devices within the workplace—a trend that cannot be ignored by employers. The combination of work and play makes the personal smart phone an ideal space for the delivery of learning content and could be leveraged as such.
This course is designed to
Create a better understanding of the risks and vulnerabilities with personal device usage
Show how the vulnerabilities differ - for the employer, employee and your data
Arm you with the knowledge and know how to protect yourself and your staff from Identified threats and vulnerabilities
Provide you with an understanding of the necessary policies, procedures and training
Highlight how best to balance productivity and profit with BOYD implementation.
This masterclass has been developed to help meet the needs of policy and technology users in all types of organizations. Many of the issues surrounding BYOD are evolving quickly, and not much has come into focus to help organizations take action now to respond to new demands. The training will spur discussion and present ideas and options that organizations can use to plot their strategies and build policies. It's essential for anyone in a leadership or technical role in IT who must respond as their community of users adopts new technologies and brings them to the organization.
