WiFi and BYOD

***Note*** Personal Laptops are not authorized on the District network starting 2017 School Year. ***Note***

BYOD

BYOD is short for Bring Your Own Device. In the consumerization of IT, BYOD, or bring your own device, is a phrase that has become widely adopted to refer to employees who bring their own computing devices – such as smartphones, laptops and tablets – to the workplace for use and connectivity on the secure corporate network.

BYOD Security

Today, employees expect to use personal smartphones and mobile devices at work, making BYOD security a concern for IT teams. Many corporations that allow employees to use their own mobile devices at work implement a BYOD security policy that clearly outlines the company's position and governance policy to help IT better manage these devices and ensure network security is not compromised by employees using their own devices at work.

BYOD security can be addressed by having IT provide detailed security requirements for each type of personal device that is used in the workplace and connected to the corporate network. For example, IT may require devices to be configured with passwords, prohibit specific types of applications from being installed on the device or require all data on the device to be encrypted. Other BYOD security policy initiatives may include limiting activities that employees are allowed to perform on these devices at work (e.g. email usage is limited to corporate email accounts only) and periodic IT audits to ensure the device is in compliance with the company's BYOD security policy.
