Mobile phones expose businesses to massive risks

Mobile phones expose businesses to massive risks | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it

Organizations are failing to respond to the culture of employees using their own mobile devices for work and are opening up their systems to security risks.

These are the preliminary findings of a survey by PwC and Infosecurity Europe.


82% of large organisations reported security breaches caused by staff, including 47% who lost or leaked confidential information.


Only 39% of large organisations encrypt data downloaded to smart phones and tablets
54% of small businesses (38% of large organisations) don’t have a security awareness programme
While 52% of small businesses say social networking sites are important to their business, only 8% monitor what their staff post on those sites.

 

Some 75% of large organisations (and 61% of small businesses) allow staff to use smart phones and tablets to connect to their corporate systems and yet only 39% (24% of small businesses) apply data encryption on the devices.

Mobile: More Districts Are Rewriting Acceptable Use Policies

Mobile: More Districts Are Rewriting Acceptable Use Policies | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it
Spotlight covers the intersections of technology and education, going behind the research to show how digital media is used in and out of classrooms to expand learning.

 

“When I talk to colleagues in Finland, they say, how do you filter?” said Jim Klein, director of Information Services and Technology at the Saugus Union School District in Southern California.

 

“They say, our kids’ filters are in their heads.

 

You do this by giving them a safe environment to educate themselves instead of sticking your head in the sand and pretending these technologies don’t exist.”

Yes, I agree, time to tune in instead of tuning out, what we don't understand.
Dodie Ellen Ballard's curator insight, March 13, 2013 2:44 AM

While this seems to be a struggle for some educational institutions, the policies not only have to be re-written, but the re-write must embrace and not negate the use of technology.

The Security, Privacy and Legal Implications of BYOD

The Security, Privacy and Legal Implications of BYOD | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it

Employees are increasingly using (and demanding to use) their personal devices to store and process their employer's data, and connect to their network...

 

Even if cost-savings is not the goal, most companies believe that processing of company data on employee personal devices is inevitable and unavoidable. Unfortunately, BYOD raises significant data security and privacy concerns, which can lead to potential legal and liability risk.

 

Many companies are having to play catch-up to control these risks.

 

This blogpost identifies and explores some of the key privacy and security legal concerns associated with BYOD, including “reasonable” BYOD security, BYOD privacy implications, and security and privacy issues related to BYOD incident response and investigations.

 

Take the example of company-owned laptop issued to an employee. When it comes to security, the company can:


- determine and limit the type of devices that can be used;


- implement minimum system requirements and configurations;


- install security-related software to the device;
encrypt company data on the device;


- apply security patches;


- monitor the use of the device to detect misuse, hacking or malware;


- dictate how the device connects to the company’s network;


- install and update anti-virus software;


- provide support for the device; and
obtain/access the device for purposes of an investigation (because the company owns the device).

The Innovative Educator: Creating a plan with students to use cell phones for learning | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it

Cross posted at the Teaching Generation Text.

 

The blog dedicated to using mobile devices for learning.

Want to integrate cell phones into learning? You can involve your students with this planning lesson where students will focus on cell phones as learning tools. With an overview of the educational uses of cell phones (the Gr8 8, below), students will determine how they will choose to use their cell phones for educational purposes.

 

Contracts for tools will be developed by students and the result will be a plan for educational uses of cell phones.
