Company Policy

by shasca In reply to Personal Laptops and pers ...

Does the Org. that you support have any guidelines that would dictate what and what cannot be connected the the Company Network? That would be a start. Most Organizations have a "Company Only" connectivity policy.

How would you control what was or wasn't installed on personal devices connected? How could you secure proprietary data? How would you handle a breach from one of these devices once connected.

Some things to mull over
