Home Applications When BYOD goes wrong

When BYOD goes wrong


I have had a tremendous reaction to my previous blog posts on BYOD.  In the first I looked at the basics of putting a BYOD policy together for your network, and my last blog post looked at remote access technologies in a BYOD era. A common question that I have been asked is what happens when BYOD goes wrong? It is inevitable that mobile devices will be lost, and in some cases they may fall into the wrong hands. When this happens you need to ask three questions.

  • Can the device be locked down remotely?
  • Do you have the tools and data available to identify what may have been on the device?
  • Do you have an incident response plan?

If a device is stolen by someone who knows what they are doing, they will get access to the data on it unless you are somehow able to wipe it first. Previously, I have recommended that you provide portal access to applications and systems which avoid the need to store sensitive data on mobile devices. However, by definition there is no secure remote access solution that prevents sensitive data from leaving your network.
