BYOD & The Impact on Mobile Breaches

Mobile breaches have become a growing area of concern in the law firm community.  With many firms choosing to allow attorneys and employees to use their own devices, managing those devices is becoming a big challenge.  According to a recent study done by Gartner, they estimate that by 2017, 75% of mobile device breaches will be a result of the faulty configuration of applications.  As breaches increase and more firms move to allow attorneys to bring their own devices, how will you regulate the use of the applications?

The three steps all firms should take are:

  • Create and implement a BYOD policy
  • Educate your employees on the risks associated with mobile devices
  • Install a mobile device management platform and require the enrollment of all mobile devices
