BYOD: Businesses must be clear on data privacy

Businesses looking to implement a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program must be aware that the parameters of what they can and cannot do with a mobile device management (MDM) platform are governed by local data privacy legislation, which inconveniently varies from market to market. No business should look to deploy a BYOD policy until they understand the implications of monitoring an employee-owned device, the requirement to obtain consent from the employee, and the risk it poses if this consent is not achieved either at the point of MDM solution deployment or at the point of a data loss event. This is particularly challenging for multinationals hoping to implement a common, business-wide policy. Ovum’s report, “International Data Privacy Legislation Review: A Guide for BYOD Policies“, maps how data privacy law differs in seven different countries (the US, UK, Germany, China, Australia, France, and Spain) and the EU, specific implications for what level of monitoring and device-level control is permissible by an employer in these markets, and how consent must be sought from an employee. The security issues around BYOD can largely be solved BYOD multiplies the number of networks, applications, and end points through which data is accessed. These are the three main points at which data is vulnerable; so, if left unmanaged, BYOD creates a huge data security risk. The good news for CIOs is that there are a whole range of vendors offering solutions that make it secure to access corporate data from personally owned devices.
