The Government has published new guidance for organisations on the security issues they must consider before adopting a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach across the organisation. The guidance highlights that organisations should follow the ICO’s own recent BYOD guidance. Staff should be asked to agree to a BYOD policy specifying what information they can access and share and organisations should put in place security measures, such as authentication procedures, and have a clear plan on how to manage a data loss incident.
