Mobile Technologies and BYOD

Staff and students increasingly expect to be able to access and use the full range of their institution’s ICT facilities and resources via their own mobile devices or mobile devices provided by their institution. Meantime the institution’s requirement is that security of systems and information is maintained and that user policies on access to systems are adhered to despite the shift in control from institution to user. The information provided here is intended to help inform colleges and universities of the legal risks inherent in mobile use.  Recognising these risks and managing them will help encourage responsible use as well as confidence in legal compliance.
