Presented by

About this talk

What it is about •Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is the Device Centric part of the Consumerisation of IT (COIT). BYOD unblocks many opportunities for significant Productivity gains for both large companies and small companies. The low cost of developing an App for a Smartphone or a Tablet can make the payback time very attractive. Allowing it to run on the employee’s preferred personal platform guarantees a higher take-up and usage of the app and allows a reduction in the replacement costs of PCs . •Attempting to achieve these gains without a methodical approach to evaluating the risks to the business might cause the company to fail to meet its compliance requirement, whether you are a Solicitor, a Financial Services company, or a Manufacturer supplying to a Defence Ministry or Government supply chain •60% of UK businesses are believed to be implementing BYOD either formally or informally but less than 40% are taking adequate security precautions. New Generation Viruses can bypass traditional Firewalls and Virus Protection and are targeted to steal Trade Secrets and High Value Financial Information from industry generally.
