The world of a data security policy has changed drastically during the past few years. There are two keys to the change: Bring your own devices (BYOD) and mobility.
The two clearly are deeply related. At their core is the idea that the security and control that the IT and security departments is gone. Now, folks essentially are traipsing all over the country – and the world – using any number of devices. These devices are all over the map in another way: The company has little or no control over the type of device or even the operating system. In most cases, they don’t likely even know there is a device being used at all.
