This interactive lunch and learn workshop is a part of the enkompas Strategic Cyber Security Education Series for Non-Profits.
BYOD - Bring Your Own Device is a movement where non-profit organizations allowed employees and volunteers to use their own mobile phones, tablets and computers (and more) to work for the sake of productivity, cost savings and user preference. Many of the solutions out there are called MDM - Mobile Device Management.
The benefits were huge and clear with BYOD, but it did come with issues. The reality is that there was no way to protect your company's data once it left the secure network and landed on that employee owned device. That was a major hole. Data security has been compromised at many Fortune 500 companies due to mobile phones and tablets being hacked. Then the Mobile Device Management Solutions were developed. These tools are helpful, but can't quite be impactful without understanding first - What is your organization's culture for technology?
Challenges that have occured are primarily based on the security of company information, data breaches (mobile phones are very easy to hack) and the lack of control of donor information when your Wi-Fi is public/free.
How can these challenges be tackled? What challenges were brought up recently? Are there issues that I need to bring to the Board of Directors? How can this just be simple but safe?
Our team has worked through many of the worst case scenarios and our engineer is leading an educational workshop for the Do's and Don'ts of Mobile Device Management for Non-Profit Organizations.
This workshop will provide you with access to the engineering insights that help shape your company's stand on employee owned technology and how it can help your organization's mission. By talking through the challenges, together we can identify the main sticking points and the solutions that can help to protect your organization's most important investment - your donor data - while empowering your team with the tools they work best on.
