As the population continues to grow more tech-savvy and gadget obsessed, so does the push for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Many organizations have already implemented BYOD solutions, and for those who have not, they are likely heeling the pressure to implement BYOD. So it seems BYOD isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
Actually whether you like it or not, personal mobile devices are coming to your secure wireless network even if you don’t plan for them. That’s why it is important to put a BYOD policy in place. Having a secure and well-thought-out BYOD policy will set expectations and address any possible privacy and security issues associated with BYOD.
The specific details to any BYOD policy will of course be a little more industry specific and even more specific to that particular organization. But here is a great infographic from Symantec that sort of maps out and guides you through the process of creating a BYOD policy for your organization. It covers all they key components of a successful BYOD policy.
