Governance, Risk and Consumerisation (Edinburgh University)

Understanding and addressing the security and legal risks of using personal devices

02 November 2011, Networking Seminar

Download the presentations

Employees using personal devices to access corporate data is a trend that is not going to go away. With one in three of us now using a smartphone, employee expectations for corporate connectivity are set rise and quickly.

For organisations, the benefits of consumerisation are numerous: greater flexibility, more effective remote working, improved productivity and enhanced business continuity. Yet, along with the flexibility comes increased security risk and new legal implications. Some organisations are confused, whilst others are ignoring the trend, or simply not allowing staff to connect their own devices, however, those who take control of the trend now can avoid many of the escalating security risks of employees clandestinely accessing the corporate network.

Attend this National Computing Centre seminar to:

  • Discover how other organisations are addressing consumerisation
  • Find out about the legal implications of consumerisation and remote working, and how to address them:
    • Data Management, including privacy and data protection
    • eDiscovery
    • investigation and auditing
    • liability
  • Learn how to devise a personal device policy that meets your organisations information security requirements.
  • Discover how to put policies into practice and take control of consumerisation, before it takes control of you

18 Holyrood Park Rd, Edinburgh EH16 5AY
