Establish BYOPC Policies

Establish policies for the use of BYOPC. For example, limit the number of PCs and other devices an employee can use for work. Take into account the home computer, the notebook and a tablet. Generally, three devices is the correct number for each employee, although it is not unheard of for an employee to use four devices. It is important to remember that each copy of Windows and the other applications on the PC will need to be licensed. Without those all-important policies in place, the software license liability for the organization can skyrocket. And remember… Establish and socialize the policies before launching a BYOPC program.

The advent of bring your own device (BYOD) has brought about a revolution in the way employees access corporate resources, namely via their smartphones and tablets. And, although initially resisted by IT departments, many organizations now have a policy in place and allow employees to use their own smart devices for work. Enterprises, however, are no longer focusing only on BYOD, but instead have broadened their responsibility to encompass the bring-your-own-PC (BYOPC) movement.

As BYOPC evolves and takes hold, IT departments must decide whether the current technology offerings in the market are reliable and secure enough to protect corporate data. To do so, organizations need to establish a solid plan for dealing with BYOPC. In this slideshow, 1E outlines steps organizations should take to develop a successful BYOPC program.
