"I also should have mentioned that they would only be accessing from the wireless network. One thing I never thought of when I was looking at data leakage was snipping data, locking the screen as a resolution which Bernd mentioned, I will now be…"

"Thank you very much for all of your replies. The students are only their own work, The staff (which has not yet been encouraged) would be accessing more sensitive data (student records, health care data etc.) I raised a high recommendation regarding…"

Bernd Kronach replied to Ricky Meechan's discussion 'BYOD security question'
"Ricky, there are a lot good suggestions here. Since I am based in Germany it may be that German law would be different then where you reside. Anyhow, besides what especially Betsy pointed out I would make sure that all people who want/need to…"

"I would recommend you do this on a trial basis with one to three people. If nothing untoward - like someone attempting to hack the system - happens, then expand the number of users with their own devices. Again, test and continue repeating this…"

Betsy Bevilacqua CISA|CISSP replied to Ricky Meechan's discussion 'BYOD security question'
"Depends on the risk, I would start by asking the following: What type of data are the students and staff accessing? Is there potential for it to be sensitive? E.g health care data or personally identifiable information? Are there any concerns of…"

Thu Ly replied to Ricky Meechan's discussion 'BYOD security question'
"Hi, In fact the web base access is sufficient security and no harm to the company network since the people can access anywhere they want with user log in and password. When you don't want someone to log in into the system, you only need to…"

"In my view there is never enough security. Be sure and implement a network access control system and mobile device management system. Why not?"

Douglas Nagan replied to Ricky Meechan's discussion 'BYOD security question'
"A complex situation. My observation is that the individuals bringing their own devices will do their darndest to bypass the security. So the security has to expect hacking. Companies can find it hard to believe their own staff would do such a thing…"

Currently have a client who are looking to encourage Bring Your Own Device for their students and some potential staff. All access would be via a web facing portal or access to remote desktop farm via https website. The wireless networks in place are segregated in a way that you cannot access the corporate network. So this would essentially be an internet connection which would connect in as if working from home. I am trying to investigate whether there is enough security here or if they…See More

"For security purposes I would say no.  A question arises when someone in your position is seeking access to secure data. Your job should be to insure that the system is not compromised."

Alexander Okoko replied to Ricky Meechan's discussion 'Appropriate access to finance system?'
