BYOD for Small Businesses

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is already well established in many larger companies as well as smaller ones. It’s not only big business that is taking advantage of all BYOD has to offer. One of the first things that any company needs to consider before anything else is a good policy. Establishing a comprehensive BYOD policy is the underpinning to any successful BYOD programme. We spoke to commercial asset recycling company Coara, based in London, to discuss how they had implemented their policy. The security of their system was especially important because they handle confidential waste disposal and IT recycling on a daily basis so understand the issues involved.

Employees should be provided with proper direction for using their own devices within a working capacity. IT departments also need the authority to manage employee-owned devices and to do so with as much authority as they previously did with company-owned devices.

Some of the most important points to address within a successful policy are naming the devices which are approved by management and security procedures.

There are many benefits for both employee and management in terms of BYOD and these include more power for employees to self-manage which in turn gives employees more confidence in their position of trust within a company; IT hours are saved as employees can update and manage things to a certain extent themselves.

Internet security trends set to dominate

If there is one thing we can all predict it is that Internet security is going to become ever more important. Unfortunately, one of the biggest threats to businesses nowadays is the possibility of a security breach. More and more companies now need to ensure their security strategy is as effective as it can be. Keeping that in mind, lets take a look at some of the trends we can expect to see in regards to Internet security.

Increased Threat To Mobile Devices

We can expect mobile phones to be the targets of many attacks throughout the year ahead. As the days go by our personal lives are becoming more connected with the digital world. From paying bills to checking emails, we use our phones for a whole host of different things that require inputting sensitive data. Unfortunately, mobile Internet has boomed at such a rate that the security features aren’t typically as sophisticated as we’d like. A lot of employees are using their phones at work and employers are encouraging a BYOD (bring your own device) policy. This further increases the risk. Thus, smart phones will undoubtedly continue to be vulnerable, yet we can also expect the security market to adapt to this and they will already be coming up with sophisticated strategies and approaches to make mobile networks less vulnerable.
