Mobile Device Management - Finding the Program That Fits
Striking the balance between the benefits of allowing employees to access employer information on personal devices and the risks of privacy breaches
With more than 27 million users, Canada has the third highest level of smartphone penetration in the world. Not surprisingly, Canadians are using these devices in support of both their personal and work lives. More than 75 per cent of Canadian employers actively support the use of employee-purchased smartphones and tablets in the workplace — a practice known as Bring Your Own Device (“BYOD”). Unfortunately, the corollary to BYOD is that more corporate data is lost through employee-operated devices in Canada than virtually anywhere else on earth. This seminar seeks to answer a pressing question for employers: how to strike an appropriate balance between the benefits gained by allowing employees to make effective use of their mobile devices, while complying with the legal obligation to protect the private information these employees routinely access.
Topics covered include:
• Mobile Device Management Models
• What policies are used to support a Mobile Device Management Program?
• Technological Solutions
