Data Security

Tip 5: Have a security plan in place before a disaster occurs.

With Big Data comes big responsibility. While wearables can be extremely helpful in providing employees more access to important company data or files, they also offer another portal to hackers or for data loss. Companies should establish security procedures specific to wearables before they are distributed or open to employees to help ensure vital company data remains secure, or at least backed up, should a disaster strike.

With the steady increase of wearables being used within the workplace, organizations need to understand how these devices will fit in as a part of wider corporate and mobile strategies, BYOD policies, and how they can be most effectively utilized to increase productivity.

While there are clear benefits to introducing wearables into enterprise functions – such as in training/on-boarding procedures or implementing health care rewards plans – wearables can also come with issues concerning employee privacy and maintaining company data security.

In this slideshow, MOBI, a leading provider of enterprise mobility services, provides five tips to help companies successfully incorporate wearables into the workplace.
