Steeper Security Curve

BYOD has often been viewed as a risky IT practice. Because of increased variety in device platforms and an increased amount of user autonomy, IT teams need to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to protecting company data.  In addition to knowing where data is, IT must keep a close eye on where it goes, as well as who has access to it.

Much has already been said about BYOD and how it affects end users, as well as what it takes to build a successful BYOD policy. But one of the most important ways that BYOD affects the workplace is through the IT employees who are forced to completely change the way they think about workplace technology.

In addition to changing hardware policy, BYOD alters the dynamics of workplace interactions between IT professionals and employees. While helping teams transition into BYOD is a high priority, it’s also essential that IT teams prepare for changes in the way they’re perceived.

By allowing teams to bring their own devices, new and unexpected variables come into the mix. By preparing for these new obstacles and expectations, teams can create an effective, adaptive BYOD gameplan. In this slideshow, Icreon Tech provides eight of the most important ways that BYOD is changing the role of IT in your workplace.
