BYOD policy & implementation
We are currently finding more and more staff members are bringing their own IT devices (laptops, tablets, smartphones) and requesting ways to use them to access university resources.
At the moment our IT group simply provide tip sheets on how to set up email access through personal devices, with smartphones and tablets restricted to Apple and Android devices only. I am aware some of the users are smart enough to set up access to shared drives and other IT services, but we do not formally provide support to it.
I would like to ask you a couple of questions:
1. Does your organisation experience increase in BYOD within your staff members?
2. Do you have a BYOD policy to ensure the organisation is not exposed due to this new trend, and if so are you able to share your policy?
3. Have you invested in further infrastructure such as virtual desktop, endpoint device back up solution, etc to allow more secure and controlled BYOD implementation?
If a similar discussion has occurred recently, I would appreciate if you could point me to it.
Thank you in advance.
