A security perspective
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), COPE (Corporate Owned Personally Enabled) or CYOD (Choose Your Own Device) are names used for projects aiming to put corporate data on mobile devices used by employees, even if those names only describe the provisioning approach of an often more complex mobile devices management project.
How to ensure that security threats will not jeopardise your mobile strategy
Recent mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets enable employees to work anytime and anywhere, and are powerful enough to handle most business activities and data, including email, documents, contacts and agendas. They are also used extensively for social media and access to cloud-stored data. This intermingling of access to business data and use of personal software applications in one device makes mobile devices a prime target for hackers and provides new entry points for attack, in addition to being easily lost or stolen.
Mobile devices are a good example of the new information security paradigm resulting from the deperimeterisation of IT, where IT assets, users and data are moved outside of the traditional Information System boundaries.
Many Luxembourg organisations across all industries are currently dealing with this type of project (either as a new service or as the migration of an obsolete system) and are facing the new security challenges presented by IT de-perimeterisation.
