Mobile Devices, BYOD…What can you do?
With more and more mobile devices coming onto the market every day, it can be hard for businesses to decide how to use them effectively. Should employees be able to use their own devices? How much access to data will you allow? Do you limit the range of devices or try and maximize flexibility? How do you prevent staff from taking pictures of confidential information or extracting it via USB?
The Midland Independent School District Board suffered a security breach when a laptop was stolen. The laptop contained Personally Identifiable Information (PII), “social security numbers and birthdates.”
How would you feel if it were your child’s information that had been COMPROMISED??? Why was the laptop not encrypted? There is credit protection though…more
