The advent of technology has brought tremendous convenience in our ability to access data for personal and business needs. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is often a requirement to conduct business in situations where contractors, consultants and personnel from other offices are collaborating. The need for outside personnel to access corporate networks and intellectual property is often key to successfully achieving goals and completing projects.
This convenience is double-edged in that it has also introduced many security concerns on both the individual and corporate level. Allowing external personnel to access company networks and devices brings an increased need for vigilance against many potential security violations.
