Councillors using their own devices has historically been a risk element but the new norm of remote working means that there is now a significant proportion of the Councils workforce working remotely. Given the large numbers of remote workers, many organisations are permitting staff to work on their own personal devices. Whilst there’s a significant costs saving in permitting staff to work remotely on their own devices, organisations will have less control over the device. This can raise a number of risks from a data protection perspective.=

This session will cover:

  • The law
  • Bring your own device or BOYD Risk
  • Having a Clear Policy
  • Data Impact Assessment
