Next BYOD: User Policy Considerations-2 Next

Questions to Ask

  • Are all employees eligible for mobile access to company data and applications?
  • Will you restrict access based on role, title, manager approval, geography or other organizational considerations?
  • Will you restrict access for individually-liable users to particular company applications or data? If so, which apps and data?
  • Will you support any personal device, or, for example, only devices explicitly certified, for example by Good Technology for use with Good For Enterprise?

Policy Considerations

  • Policy should clearly address:
    • All eligibility requirements
    • Any device support limitations
    • Employee risks and responsibilities
    • Any applications or data access limitations
  • Any processes for obtaining approval

As more companies embrace the broad usage of individually-owned mobile devices for access to corporate applications and data, Good Technology is often asked for guidance on the establishment of an associated device usage policy. This slideshow, as outlined by Good Technology, is intended to provide guidance on questions that companies should ask themselves when establishing their own policies and related considerations.

Only your combined information technology (IT), human resource (HR), finance and legal teams — working closely with your executive team and business unit managers — can determine the exact corporate liable and/or individual liable policy that best fits your company, meets its financial goals and objectives, and takes into account security, legal, regulatory, tax or other requirements and considerations that may uniquely apply to your company and its operations.
