Insurance Networking NewsBYOD Policy Template Released

Product addresses a variety of best practices and risks associated with employee use of personal devices for work, including legal issues that arise from access of employee data by an employer

In a continuing effort to create a set of standard procedures that CIOs can implement to meet the challenges they face due to emerging technologies and processes, Janco Associates has added a Bring-Your-Own-Device Policy to its CIO Infrastructure Policy bundle.

The BYOD policy addresses the issues associated with sensitive data on personal devices, how they are backed up, secured and destroyed when needed. In addition, the policy addresses what to do when an employee leaves, either voluntarily or involuntarily. An added feature is an Access and Use Agreement, which addresses all the legal issues that arise out of the electronic access of employee data by an employer.

“As the use of personal mobile devices expands, IT executives are faced with the dilemma that either they support the use of personal mobile devices and maintain some control, or the devices will be used and their companies will be at risk for data breaches and non-compliance with mandate requirements," Janco CEO Victor Janulaitis said. “Blocking access to the wealth of resources available to personal devices inhibits productivity and competitiveness. At the same time allowing access without a set of rules puts the enterprise and its resources at risk. ”

The policy and its electronic form have been added to the CIO Infrastructure Policy bundle and meets all of the mandated requirements of HIPAA, ISO, SOX, Gramm-Leach-Bailey, Electronic Communication Privacy Act (Stored Communications Act).

The policies have just been updated to comply with all mandated requirements and include electronic forms that can be Emailed, filled out completely on the computer, routed and stored electronically -- a total solution.

We have just completed a major update of all the individual polices and all of the electronic forms.
