Businesses should check software licensing agreements

_________________________________________________________________________

Businesses that permit staff to use personal devices for work purposes should check whether the use of software purchased by the company is allowed on these devices, according to guidance developed by the National Technical Authority for Information Assurance and the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure. The guidance also reminds companies that they, rather than their staff, are responsible for ensuring data is protected, and supports the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) recommendation that every company should have a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) policy that explains exactly when staff are permitted to share data from their personal devices.
