BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is the new workplace trend.
With the new anytime-anywhere work culture, organizations are fast adopting
BYOD to attract fresh talent; professionals that believe that having the same
device for business and personal use allows for greater efficiency and agility.
BYOD has proven to be a boon for most units within the
organization: HR – they can attract progressive talent, managers – their
employees can now work just as effectively when remote and the CFO – the cost
of new laptops, et al is significantly cut down. However, the office of the CIO
and the IT security team are now dealing with additional security
challenges. Risks come from an external
device accessing your enterprise data. An unsecured device, unauthorized access
on a secure device, network breaches – any combination of these can put your
enterprise data at risk. And with that come the compliance challenges. How do
you provide assurance that only the right users have access to the data, and only
the data they need – no more, no less? And when you look at the different
device, operating system, users permutations, you quickly realize that the
scale and complexity of the security challenge that BYOD poses is way beyond
what we have dealt with in the past.
Appreciating the mobile security challenge and the risk
posed to business applications, SANS Institute recently conducted a survey of
over 600 organizations to understand the current state of BYOD framework and
mobile security policies that organizations have started to put in place. The
objective was to hone in on key elements that enterprises should consider to
manage their security and compliance program.
the SANS survey report, complete with findings and recommendations and hear
first hand from SANS legal technology expert, Ben Wright, about the common
legal, privacy and ownership issues that arise when considering policy for BYOD
and learn how you can offer audit insight to conform to your regulatory and
other compliance mandates. Catch the webcast
and learn about the latest advances in Oracle Identity Management that enable
secure, seamless mobile interoperability.
We hope that the survey results along with the nuggets
shared in the webcast will allow you to benchmark your BYOD/mobile security
strategy and adopt best practices to meet your legal, consumer and compliance
