Safeguard your IT Network with common sense policies

1st February 2017

Safeguarding their IT network is a challenge for many companies.

Now that many employees are using their own tablets and smartphones at work, and keeping your corporate network safe becomes a serious headache. However, as long as employers follow careful steps, employees using their own devices at work could help boost efficiency and effectiveness and be something businesses should embrace.

Proactive steps include providing employees with clear policies and user friendly guidance on how to filter and prevent information leaving the organisation.

One option is that businesses should regulate which types of personal data can be processed on personal devices, and put facilities in place so the confidentiality of the data can be maintained in the event of loss, theft or personnel change.

As long as they are well prepared, companies should view employees using their own devices at work as an opportunity to leverage potential gains in efficiency.

Employers need to adopt common sense policies around how personal devices can and can’t be used to view and share company data. Enabling a flexible and collaborative workforce through a clear strategy presents an opportunity to enhance efficiency.
